Perks of Participation

Following the conference, we will provide participants of the #TravelWithCANIE initiative with a certificate outlining their contribution in reducing emissions to the total emissions reduction achieved as part of the conference.

*Please consider the values generated by Travel and Climate's carbon calculator as estimates of the carbon emitted by various forms of travel. For the purposes of estimating carbon savings by switching your mode of travel to conferences, this calculator is considered sufficient. There are specific carbon calculators for each mode of travel that may be more detailed and robust, but for our current purposes, this calculator provides the convenience of all modes of transport in one place.*
