Good morning, this is Pip. Today, we’re hearing how the climate crisis is pushing one aid group to focus on their own carbon emissions, with an eye on where improvements can be made.

As the one-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine approaches, the UN human rights office says the latest official tally of civilian casualties may only be the tip of the iceberg. Meanwhile in Geneva's left bank, commodity traders have made huge profits due to the war.

Why this NGO is publishing its carbon emissions. The climate emergency is pushing aid groups to rethink how they operate, with many taking a look at their own carbon footprints and promising to go greener in the future. Médecins Sans Frontières is one of the first to put these words into action, laying out a roadmap of how it plans to meet its goal of halving emissions by 2030. Dikolela Kalubi, MSF’s coordinator for planetary health, explains the organisation’s plans.
