ANZICS 2020 is committed to reducing our impact on the environment. To this end we have engaged the following protocols :
Fly with Air New Zealand! Take the opportunity to offset your carbon footprint and fly to ANZICS 2020 with Air New Zealand. FlyNeutral supports New Zealand travellers to offset the carbon emissions associated with their Air New Zealand flights. See here for more information about FlyNeutral.
Contribute when you Register You will have the opportunity to offset your carbon footprint in attending this conference by making a small contribution during the registration process. We estimate that we need approximately $4 per delegate to offset your carbon footprint. Contributions will go towards Native Forest Carbon Credits with https://ekos.org.nz
Recycling & Conservation Napier Conference Centre endorses sustainable practices for the good of the environment. Recycling stations are located in the upper and lower foyer areas. Assistance with recycling and conservation of power and water is appreciated.
Catering We are working with Napier Conference Centre to minimise food waste plus we will be offering a great variety of delicious meals for our lunches throughout the conference, along with a good number of vegetarian options. On the odd occasion that there is food left over, we will donate this to a charity such as 'Nourished for Nil' or 'Women's Refuge'. Please ensure you bring along a refillable water bottle so we minimise the usage of disposable plastic cups!
Delegate Handouts We will NOT be supplying plastic name badges this year, rather we will print your name directly onto a sticky label and provide you with an environmentally friendly wrist band to identify you as an ANZICS 2020 conference delegate! We won't be offering delegate satchels/bags this year so if you need a bag please feel free to bring one along with you.
Printed Material - Minimize printing in general - As much electronic information as possible
Sponsors and Exhibitors We are working with our supporters to ensure the environmental message is passed along. Sponsors and exhibitors have been asked to ensure they reduce their waste and environmental impact by providing appropriate information about themselves and their services in electronic format rather than printed material.
