amiando goes green!

We are happy to announce that amiando launches Green Ticketing at this year’s SXSW interactive festival!

Green events try to be as environmentally friendly as possible and with our completely paperless online registration and ticketing we already help events being green. But now we’ve thought of something new: from now on, delegates have the opportunity to buy CO2 certificates with each ticket in order to compensate for their carbon dioxid emission impact that is caused by traveling to and from the event.

How does it work?

When you buy a ticket for any event on amiando, you will be asked if you want to purchase a CO2 certificate. The cost of this certificate depends on the attendee’s traveling distance to the event, the type and the lenght of the event. The money from these certificates is used for reforestation projects – trees are planted which compensate for the attendee’s calculated carbon dioxide emissions.

Organizers and sponsors can also help making event management greener by paying the total cost for compensating the event’s carbon dioxide footprint.

“Event production and attendee travelling make events a relevant contributor of greenhouse gas emissions. As the tool of choice for thousands of event organizers we see it as our responsibility to act environmentally thoughtful. Therefore we are very happy and proud to help both event organizers and delegates to reduce an event’s carbon footprint”, says Felix Haas, CEO amiando.

Our provider of the CO2 certificates is ClimatePartner, a climate protection consultancy which works closely with environmental organizations.
