The Vatican Climate Forest, to be located in the Bükk National Parkmarker, Hungarymarker, was donated to the Vatican Citymarker by a carbon offsetting company. The forest is to be sized to offset the carbon emissions generated by the Vatican during 2007. The Vatican's acceptance of the offer, at a ceremony on July 5, 2007, was reported as being "purely symbolic", and a way to encourage Catholics to do more to safeguard the planet.

In a more proactive move to combat global warming, in May 2007, the Vatican announced that the roof of the Paul VI Audience Hallmarker would be covered with photovoltaic panels.
