Responsible event planning: Utilizing technology to reduce paper consumption by digitizing conference materials, organizing virtual meetings where possible, minimizing waste through recycling and reuse.
Selection of local suppliers and products: Preferring local suppliers and products, which helps support the local economy and reduces carbon dioxide emissions associated with transporting products over long distances.
Education and engagement of participants: Organizing educational events on sustainable development, encouraging participants to take environmentally friendly actions during the event, such as waste segregation and water conservation.
