Sustainability

Carbon Offset

When booking your flights to Melbourne, Australia we encourage delegates to consider including carbon credits which are donated to projects around the world that are designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  Each airline does have a different policy so it’s important to research this before booking. 

Paper Reduction

As much as possible the Congress will reduce the amount of printing in both the lead up to and onsite.  Delegates are encouraged to use electronic resources, such as downloads from the website and app, where possible. 

All printing produced for the Congress will be done on FSC graded paper. 

Plastic Reduction 

Delegates are encouraged to bring a water bottle onsite which can be refilled at the numerous water stations within the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. 

Recycling 

Lanyards, name badges and satchels will be recycled so we encourage you to return these to the Registration and Information Desk upon completion of the Congress.
