Climate-neutral events

Calculation of the carbon footprint is an important building block in climate protection. The carbon footprinting of an event involves calculating and reporting all relevant greenhouse gas emissions. This includes the emissions of the infrastructure (power consumption, heat energy, refrigeration), the journeys of the participants to the event, catering and lodging for the participants, and event-specific materials and waste.

This data is recorded and the CO2 calculated with the web-based software myclimate smart 3. The data entered is checked by myclimate to ensure that it is plausible, and at the end you receive the climate-neutral label and an overview of the carbon footprint of your event.

The emissions are compensated in high-quality myclimate climate protection projects throughout the world that fulfil the highest standards (CDM, Gold Standard, Plan Vivo). The projects reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, thus directly protecting the climate. However, climate protection projects not only reduce climate-impacting emissions, they also contribute to sustainable development in the project region.
