We are aware of the ecological footprint that events can have, therefore we implement several measures to reduce our impact and offset our emissions:

Waste reduction

  • No plastic bottles are served or allowed on site. Please bring your reusable bottle.
  • Reusable or compostable dishware is used during meals.
  • Online registration without printed tickets required.
  • Organic waste and recyclables will be collected on site.

Eco-conscious transport

  • We encourage participants to take low emissions transportation to the event.
  • We facilitate a carpooling group for Symposium participants.

Local and organic products

  • The food and beverages served during lunches, coffee breaks and cocktail receptions will be 70% organic and local.

Carbon accounting

  • We track all emissions incurred by participant transportation to the Symposium.

Recycled paper

  • Recycled paper is used for our printed materials.

Carbon offset

  • All emissions related to participant travel to the event will be offset through a riparian buffer revitalization project.
