Construction has been under way on the sprawling 22,000 square-foot home for over a year, and the palatial pad is coming along nicely.
The eight-bedroom mansion sits on 3.75 acres high in the hills of Brentwood, California.
It boasts a lift, lagoon-shaped pool, wine cellar, parking for six cars, weights room and a covered bridge connecting two buildings.
On climate change, Gisele noted, "Climate change is something we can't deny? It affects all of us. At the end of the day, it's our planet ? we all have to feel accountable."
Achim Steiner, UN Under-Secretary-General and UNEP Executive Director said: "Gisele is among a handful of talented individuals and personalities that have a truly global reach. She is also a committed and passionate environmentalist. UNEP is delighted to welcome her on board as a Goodwill Ambassador so that with her help, we can make environmental action a global brand and a life-style choice, from New York to Nairobi and from Sao Paolo to Shanghai."
