The Austrian Climate Day as Green Meeting


This year, we once again seek to organise the Climate Day as a green meeting and to make it as sustainable as possible. We kindly ask you to support us in this endeavour by using climate-friendly means of transport, such as trains, coaches, or carpooling/sharing, for your journey to and from Graz.

The Center for Global Change and Sustainability accredited the event as Green Meeting. It meets the criteria of the Austrian Eco Label for "Green Meetings & Green Events".

Carbon offsetting

It is our aim to organise the Climate Day 2016 as environmentally friendly as possible. This calls for an environmentally friendly buffet, the programme booklet to be printed environmentally friendly, and the accessibility of all event locations via public transport, by bicycle, or on foot. Also communication and the collective will to set an example play an important part. The motto is: prevent and reduce climate-damaging greenhouse gas emissions.

Using the Vienna University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences’ carbon offsetting system, the CCCA will compensate for those CO2 emissions caused by the participants travelling to and from the Climate Day.

Further information on the carbon offsetting system are available here.

 

Waste separation

All Climate Day venues are equipped with waste separation systems, and we kindly ask you to dispose of your waste accordingly.
