Our Green Commitment

Green Commitment

At ESE we recognise the growing impact our activities and events have on the environment, therefore we have created an environmental policy detailing how we are decreasing our environmental impact.  

We are in the process of working on a wider environmental policy across all of ESE's activities, which will be communicated in the coming months to the ESE membership. 

ECE 2024  

  • Offered delegates the option to participate in the Congress online via ECE@Home, which allows attendees who are unable to travel or do not wish to do so to follow the Congress programme via live stream or on demand.  
  • We did not print a preliminary programme that used to be sent to ESE members, this was instead available on the ECE 2024 website and was regularly updated.  
  • We produced a condensed programme book for delegates onsite in Stockholm. The abstract /poster list was available digitally only, plus the full abstract and ePosters.    
  • We reduced the amount of onsite one-off printing and delegate materials; this included not providing delegate bags, and as per the previous year no printed flyers are permitted but are instead available via the Congress e-Bag. Any merchandise was made of recycled materials only. 
  • ESE encouraged train travel where possible to Stockholm and the use of public transport when attending ECE 2024.  
  • Provided the opportunity for delegates to offset travel to the Congress using Atmosfair* 

*Atmosfair is a German non-profit organisation that actively contributes CO2 mitigation by promoting, developing and financing renewable energies in over 15 countries worldwide. In 2020 for every 100 Euros donated, approximately 91 Euros were invited in the direct purchase of climate change mitigation technologies.
