SupplySide Sustainability Program | Carbon Offset


What the Show is Doing...

Our goal is to become a carbon neutral event. To achieve this, we are reducing our carbon footprint by increasing efficiencies powering the event by renewable electricity and reducing the amount of waste generated. While registering for SupplySide West & Food ingredients North America you will be provided with the option to purchase carbon offsets to compensate for the emissions produced by your flight. 

  • Carbon offsets are designed to counterbalance any unavoidable carbon footprint by funding an equivalent carbon dioxide saving elsewhere in the world. Through paying a carbon offset fee you help others reduce, remove or avoid emissions being generated. 

  • The projects supported include Amazonian Rainforest Conversation in Brazil, Household Biodigester Distribution in China, Domestic Energy Systems in India, Teak Afforestation in Mexico, American Grasslands Conservation in USA and Reserve Preservation in Borneo.

  • These projects bring a whole host of other positive benefits, such as empowering communities and increasing their wellbeing, protecting ecosystems, creating jobs and reducing reliance on fossil fuels.

  • The price for the carbon offset is determined by the quantity of CO2 emissions that an aeroplane gives off per passenger for a given flight distance. 

 

 

We partnered with Natural Capital Partners to ensure support of certified and audited carbon offset projects around the world. All the projects supported are independently verified to assure emission reductions are occurring.
