We are striving to make 14th ICRS 2021 VIRTUAL as sustainable and climate-neutral as possible. Inspired by the example of COP23 in Bonn, Germany, the 14th ICRS 2021 VIRTUAL organising committee is cooperating with local organisations in the areas of sustainable management, energy efficiency, renewable energies, and carbon-offsetting. With different partners, 14th ICRS 2021 VIRTUAL is working to (1) minimise waste and local CO2 emissions, and (2) offset all unavoidable CO2 emissions arising from local activities and air travel.
For the successful implementation of a complete carbon offset, supporters are still needed to cover the associated costs. Please contact us if you are interested in supporting our efforts to make 14th ICRS 2021 VIRTUAL a climate-neutral global event.
14th ICRS 2021 VIRTUAL Conference Secretariat
The 14th ICRS 2021 VIRTUAL Conference Secretariat was established in September 2017 at the University of Bremen. Since then the Conference Secretariat has been working according to the sustainability guidelines established by the certification of the University of Bremen according to EU EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme).
EMAS is a premium management tool developed by the European Commission for companies and other organisations to assess, report and improve their environmental performance. The University of Bremen, German representative for the EU Commission EMAS Award 2019, is a partner in the HOCH-N sustainability network of higher education institutions in Germany.
