Carbon-neutral events

neutro

One of the most significant environmental aspects to have emerged in recent years has been global warming and the climate change it entails. The main impact of any human activity on this phenomenon is fuelled by the emission of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) into the atmosphere, in particular carbon dioxide, more commonly known as CO2.

What is a carbon footprint?

The concept of an event's "carbon footprint" is an indicator that is used in the area of sustainability to find out an organisation's total impact on the climate as regards its GHG emissions, i.e. the amount of CO2 generated by the event, and which enables the organisers to establish the starting point from which they can plan any action to improve the event's environmental sustainability, given that it enables us to identify all the sources of GHG emissions and, based on this knowledge, we can establish the effective reduction measures to apply.

Carbon footprint analysis covers all the stages of the event's development (design-preparation-assembly-development-disassembly) and provides data that can be used as a global environmental indicator of the event, and as a basic reference point for embarking on action to reduce energy consumption.

Carbon footprint action helps to set the event apart in a society that is increasingly more aware of these issues and that favours more sustainable events.

In any case, calculating the carbon footprint is an essential requirement for sustainable events in the 21st century.

At Eventos Navarra, we believe that one of the main environmental challenges facing society today is the problem of climate change,and this is why one of our main action policies focuses on our activities' greenhouse gas emissions.

For this reason, we offer our clients the chance to measure their events' carbon footprint. We also suggest compensatory measures to counteract the carbon footprint generated, in order to achieve carbon-neutral events.
