While the amount of GHG emissions generated on site will be reduced to the extent possible, certain emissions – such as those associated with travel, which is responsible for the lion’s share of the overall footprint – remain unavoidable. ITU will offset the air travel CO2 emissions of ITU staff travelling to the Plenipotentiary Conference in the context of the yearly Greenhouse Gas inventory.
All delegates are strongly encouraged to choose the most environmentally-friendly way to come to the event, for example by train, or by booking the flight
with the least CO2 emissions (i.e. most direct route, economy class). Delegates are also encouraged to offset their flight emissions. Emissions generated by air travel can for example be calculated using ICAO’s carbon emissions calculator
and offset via UNFCCC’s climate neutral now platform
