The conference is working towards having a limited impact on the environment through careful consumption of energy and resources. Although hosting an entirely sustainable meeting implies a lot of work, it’s absolutely worth the effort. This includes, among others, electronically circulating meeting materials (online file sharing), not producing unnecessary conference material and products, choosing environmentally-friendly and socially-friendly products, as well as providing healthy food and hosting meetings and social events in central locations.
We believe that implementing some environmentally-friendly practices can have a positive impact and generate sustainable solutions. Thus, these guidelines are provided for coordinators, committees and contractors to the conference and aim to educate and inspire continued mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions.
