Mercury and the GEF
The GEF has a long standing commitment to the elimination of global contaminants, including mercury, which dates back to 1995 when the GEF Council recognized the need for action on mercury. In recent years the GEF has taken a significant step towards addressing global mercury pollution.


The numbers tell a story: 21 years, $10.5 billion invested directly, $51 billion in cofinancing, and over 2,700 projects in more than 165 countries. Together, these numbers make us the world’s leading public financial fund investing in the joint management, care, and restoration of our planet.
