Carbon Neutral

The Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand is proud to be measuring, managing (reducing) and mitigating the Green House Gas (GHG) emissions associated with the Conference organization and implementation.

Some of the initiatives that are being carried out by the Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand for reducing GHG emissions from the conference include:

  • Creation of an online website to reduce paper communication.
  • E-correspondence between organizers, delegates and speakers
  • Reduced size and number of paper communications whilst only using recycled paper or paper sourced from sustainable forests
  • Recycling lanyards and pens from and for other EIANZ events as well as not using plastic slips for lanyards.
  • Reducing the size of the proceedings booklet through better design while not cutting content
  • Allowing for note space within the booklet and so reducing the need for note paper
  • Hosting the proceedings online post conference rather than sending out a CD-Rom
  • No event bags or flyers with the proceedings as all content will be printed together and contained within the proceedings booklet.
  • We will work closely with Te Papa to ensure energy efficient systems are in place for the conference.

The Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand is also encouraging all attendees to try and reduce their own GHG emissions in getting to the event and whilst at the event (please see list of ideas below).  Where reductions cannot be made, delegates can offset their emissions by purchasing verified carbon credits through the carboNZero programme.
Go to to calculate your emissions and offset them.  You can pay online via a secure site.

Ideas for minimizing your GHG emissions around the conference:
  • Car-pool if driving to the conference
  • Off-set air travel if flying to the conference
  • Use public transport  share a taxi/shuttle from the airport to your hotel
  • Book a hotel near the conference swo that you can walk to and from the event
  • Use the website as a reference tool rather than printing material off around the event
  • Recycle your lanyard at the event and only take a pen if  you need one.
