Demonstrate Your Commitment
Event organizers know that the impact of an event is not limited to the people in attendance. Through media coverage and social networks, the message of the event can be spread to a much broader audience. Events are therefore invaluable opportunities to present your company on a public stage. By hosting a carbon neutral event, your company demonstrates commitment to preserving an intact and livable environment.
With First Climate you can offset the carbon emissions of any event – be it your shareholders’ meeting, a trade convention, a cultural show or a sports event. Our services include:
- Guidance in organizing climate-friendly events
- Calculating your events’ carbon footprint
- Offsetting your emissions with verified climate protection projects
Be Smart – Avoid Emissions
Through careful planning, you can work towards a low-carbon event from the very start – for example by cooperating with regional service providers or by purchasing seasonal products with short travel distances for the catering. First Climate can help you to identify the most cost-effective strategies for improving efficiency, reducing waste, and limiting your carbon footprint.
Trace your carbon footprint. Even with the most elaborate advance planning it won’t be possible to put carbon emissions of your event to zero. If you plan to make your event a climate neutral event, it is therefore essential to know the amount of emissions caused by your event. First Climate can calculate the size of the carbon footprint based on your event’s characteristics. Ideally, your event’s carbon footprint is calculated even before the actual planning of your event starts, as this makes it possible to define a realistic and impactful climate protection target. We’ll be right there for you to help you with this task.
Offset your emissions. For your unavoidable emissions, you can compensate your event’s carbon footprint by supporting a climate protection project that reduces the same volume of greenhouse gases as generated by your event. These projects could be renewable energy projects, energy efficiency projects or forestry activities that are verified according to the highest quality standards (Gold Standard, VCS, Social Carbon and CCBS). With our experience and long-standing market presence, we are able to provide one of the most extensive project-portfolios in the market and to recommend or develop a tailor-made offer. Important: All of our carbon offset projects are 100 percent additional and could not be implemented without your contribution and support. Their quality is reviewed and confirmed annually by independent experts such as TÜV or Det Norske Veritas. You may find out more about our projects here>>.
