Our Sustainability Efforts

 

To align with the forum theme of sustainability, we aim to minimize the environmental impact of our event in a number of ways:

  • Doing our Due Diligence - We have consulted with the venue regarding facility practices, and whenever possible, we have chosen options that minimize the environmental impact of the events.

  • Minimize Paper Use/Printing - When possible, Forum material will be presented in a digital format and we will be using plantable seed paper for name badges.

  • Reduce Waste - As a means to minimize waste by foregoing the option of providing conference bags (plastic or otherwise) and encourage attendees to bring their own.

  • Offset Emission - To make up for the standard carbon emissions produced during the event, we have pledged to offset this cost with a number of environmentally friendly initiatives, such as purchasing green power through Bullfrog Power.

  • Sustainability Partners - We are actively looking for sponsors from private and public organizations that share a similar commitment, and endorse the sustainability measures we are taking for this year’s Forums.

 

How to Make Your Experience as Green as Possible

 

We encourage attendees to 'green' their experience through the following ways:

  1. BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle/Bag) for refreshments including water, coffee, and tea / material distributed at the event.

  2. Go Digital by taking notes on an electronic device. Whenever possible, Forum information, including some presentations, will be available online for attendees.​

  3. Consider Your Travel by choosing to walk when possible, and either carpooling or using a ride share with colleagues to and from the event.

  4. Offset your attendance at the conference.
