Event App
We have reduced waste by replacing printed documentation with an app. Make sure you have it downloaded to your devices in time for the meeting.

Catering
You will have some great food choices while you are with us but now we have worked with the caterer to increase the proportion of plant-based items. We have also built a plan with the venue to avoid waste through how they serve meals and how leftovers are processed.

Travel
An international meeting does involve travel but where it is practical, please consider more sustainable alternatives to flying. The app will also have a discussion space to arrange ride shares.
