The conference is working towards having 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 a continued mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions.
