Green events adopt environmentally friendly measures wherever it is possible. The main goal is to reduce their carbon footprint, which is the total set of greenhouse gas emissions caused by the particular event. There are multiple ways to make an event greener such as saving energy, recycling, paperless online event management systems and the minimization of carbon dioxide emissions for travelling delegates. amiando takes responsibility and supports this idea: It provides event professionals with an online registration system that minimizes the environmental impact that results from an event and its delegates.
amiando – Climate Neutral Event Participation – Easy and Transparent
amiando’s online event management software allows event organisers and delegates to be more environmentally-thoughtful. amiando offers the innovative service green ticketing in cooperation with the climate protection consultancy ClimatePartner. Not only is amiando’s online registration system completely paperless,amiando now allows delegates to buy CO2 certificates in order to compensate for their carbon dioxide emissions impact. With the integration of the ClimatePartner calculation, each participant´s travel to and from the event, the type of event, the duration of the event, as well as potential attendee accommodation will be accounted for.
Offset carbon dioxide impact
Attendee travel to and from an event accounts a large majority of the overall carbon dioxide footprint of an event. The attendees can compensate their CO2 impact by purchasing CO2 certificates when registering for an event. The price for each CO2 certificate depends on the individual attendee’s travel distance as well as the type and the length of the event. The compensation amount is used for example for reforestation projects. Organisers and sponsors can have a share in making event management greener by paying the total cost for compensating the event’s carbon dioxide footprint.
