GEF Logo

Please refer to the GEF Brand Guidelines for correct brand identity elements, color usage, typography, and more.

GEF logos may be used only with prior written authorization from a GEF officer. Requests can be submitted to Mr. Christian Hofer, chofer@thegef.org.

Partner organizations that already have an established relation with the GEF, such as GEF agencies, do not need prior authorization to use the GEF logo in their communication material. However, all partners must inform the GEF when they plan to use the logo and share a copy of their final product.

On the occasion of the GEF 30th anniversary this special logo below can be used temporarily instead of the original signature logo until the end of December 2021. Download the entire 30 years logo package here.

The original signature GEF logo without the 30 year anniversary addition can still be used if preferred.

GEF Boilerplate

The Global Environment Facility (GEF) was established 30 years ago on the eve of the Rio Earth Summit to tackle our planet’s most pressing environmental problems. Since then, it has provided more than $21.5 billion in grants and mobilized an additional $117 billion in co-financing for more than 5,000 projects and programs. The GEF is the largest multilateral trust fund focused on enabling developing countries to invest in nature, and supports the implementation of major international environmental conventions including on biodiversity, climate change, chemicals, and desertification. It brings together 184 member governments in addition to civil society, international organization, and private sector partners. Through its Small Grants Programme, the GEF has provided support to more than 25,000 civil society and community initiatives in 135 countries.
