Carbon Off-setting

Having the opportunity to meet face to face, connect and share our knowledge is an invaluable experience. At the same time, we recognize this Congress has associated impacts from travel/transportation and lodging.

In planning for the event, great care was taken to incorporate sustainability considerations into the various aspects and activities for the congress. These actions include:

  • Reducing the amount of materials produced for the Congress
  • Encouraging the use of public transportation
  • Facilitating offsets for our impacts with the help of meeting delegates and sponsors.

In keeping with our goal, we are also encouraging conference delegates to offset their travel-related carbon impacts associated with the conference.

For a list of carbon offset providers, we suggest you visit CarbonCatalog.org. Carbon Catalog is a free and independent web directory of carbon offsets (they do not sell offsets or have commercial relationships with providers). Once you have chosen the project you wish to support, you can follow the link to their website, where a simple calculator will be available to help you determine the carbon impact of your travel to the ECE 2020. You can then donate the off-set amount to your chosen project.

Thank you for your consideration.
