Waste Reduction

We will minimize waste generation by working with the venue to implement recycling stations, promote the usage of recyclable / reusable materials, and provide digital alternatives to conference materials whenever possible. We will reduce post-conference waste when feasible by donating conference materials to local community groups.

Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

We will work with the venue to optimize energy usage by employing energy-efficient technologies and practices where available.

Responsible Transportation

We will encourage participants to use sustainable local transit options through pre-conference and on-site awareness campaigns. These options include public transit, carpooling, biking, and more. We also encourage attendees to book their stay at the conference venue to reduce the need for daily transportation.

Sustainable Food and Beverage

On-site we will will work with the venue to prioritize local, vegetarian, and seasonal options while minimizing single-use plastics and packaging waste.

Continuous Improvement
