Europe’s only free-to-attend show dedicated to event technology has partnered with industry charity, Energy Revolution, and industry giant GES to provide the opportunity for visitors, suppliers and exhibitors to balance their travel carbon to this year’s event.
Travelling via carpool or public transport helps reduce carbon emissions and organisers at Event Tech Live are encouraging anyone travelling to the show to do so in a ‘carbon-light’ way as possible.
Energy Revolution’s Travel Carbon Calculator allows users to offset the carbon emissions created when making their way to the show. 100% of donations go directly to projects that create clean, renewable energy.
Event Tech Live co-founder, Adam Parry, explained the reasons behind partnering with Energy Revolution: “Companies, events and individuals are doing more and more to help improve the state of the environment. We wanted to do our part in helping reduce carbon emissions and balance out any that are created travelling to our show.”
Bethan Riach, the communications manager at Energy Revolution, commented: “By using Energy Revolution’s carbon calculator to work out their travel emissions, audiences, crew, speakers, suppliers and production teams get a clearer picture of the environmental impacts of their travel and the benefit of finding more sustainable ways to get onsite.
“With the option to balance their carbon emissions with a donation to projects that create clean renewable energy, they can do something positive about the negative impacts of their journey.”
Event Tech Live has joined a long list of events that work with Energy Revolution to improve renewable energy solutions, such as 40 of the UK’s favourite festivals, artists and event suppliers. Since 2015, the charity has balanced over 8.4 million travel miles, helped put solar panels on the roofs of UK schools and funded community solar power with Bristol Energy Co-op.
