ICGN organises annual conference as carbon neutral event

This year’s Annual Conference of the International Corporate Governance Network ICGN took place in Tokyo from July 16-18. As a global network, ICGN depends on personal exchange between its members. In order to minimise the climate impact of the event, ICGN for the first time offset all unavoidable CO2 emissions of the event by supporting a Gold Standard climate protection project in Laos – including travel to and from the event for all delegates.

As offset partner PROJECT CLIMATE was responsible for calculating the carbon footprint of the event and offsetting the unavoidable CO2 emissions. The cooperation on climate protection is to be continued in the coming years. Further steps to reduce the carbon footprint will then also be on the agenda.
