Why does GBTA choose to offset its emissions?

GBTA is committed to reducing the environmental impact of its events as much as possible. However,
for those unavoidable emissions, we choose to offset the emissions related to Convention to contribute
to driving investment and innovation in low-carbon technologies and practices.

Recap: Convention 2023 Emissions and Sustainability Wins

GBTA values sustainability, and we’ve been tracking the emissions for Convention and our Europe
Conference since 2022.

Emissions calculations are the necessary first step towards reducing the environmental impact of our
events. These calculations will guide our decision-making, allowing GBTA to identify emission hotspots,
set reduction targets, and implement strategies to mitigate their environmental footprint.

GBTA is committed to fostering accountability and driving sustainable practices. Emissions calculations
play a key role in shaping a more environmentally responsible future.
