Carbon footprint

The event is accompanied by the “Estimation and Compensation of the Carbon Footprint” action, which aims at estimating the event-related GHG emissions and then fully offsetting them through the purchase of the corresponding emission allowances from the market.

The carbon footprint will be estimated in accordance with the principles outlined in the GHG Protocol standard, which was developed in collaboration with the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
