The AoC Events team are proud to be running the Annual Conference and Exhibition 2023 as a carbon neutral event for the third year running.

    Our progress so far:

    📈 2021

    Our carbon footprint measured 125 tonnes

    📈 2022

    Our carbon footprint measured 96 tonnes

    Total reduction of 29 tonnes (23%)

    How we do this:

    • We collect all the necessary data to calculate the events carbon footprint
    • Identifying opportunities to reduce emissions and deliver carbon reductions
    • We offset to Verified Carbon Standard approved projects in the UK and overseas to balance out the remaining carbon emissions and deliver a net zero carbon event.

    What we measure:

    • Travel
    • Accommodation
    • Catering
    • Event space
    • Promotional material

    What we have learnt from previous reports?

    The main area we have been able to make our biggest impact is the catering. Last year we ran the conference with a vegetarian menu and in doing so we made a significant reduction of 15.2 tonnes in this area alone!

    We work closely with the ICC to identify other areas of improvement that can help with our goals of reduction.
