Our gathering will certainly have a net positive impact on the planet, but as part of our commitment to develop a carbon neutral conference, we are measuring the carbon footprint of our travel.
You will have the opportunity - and we encourage you - to input your travel type and mileage at registration stage so we can make the crucial step towards carbon consciousness and the accurate accounting of our CO2 emissions. Your travel type and mileage will not affect your donation.
We have partnered with Earthdeeds to make this possible. First, please follow the link to our custom calculator. You can find this through our Conference Registration form or on the website.. Then, input any flights and ground transportation to estimate your travel emissions. For example, a roundtrip flight from London to Florence and some ground travel to Bagnaia will emit around 3.42 metric tons of CO2. Then, scroll down to learn what this means in real-world terms.
You can then see an estimate of the social cost -- the anticipated economic damages -- of these emissions, which is important for us to know, but we’re not asking you to contribute this amount. Just click “Save” and Earth Deeds automatically aggregates our individual emissions so we can get a fuller picture of the collective impact of our travel.
Daniel Greenberg will share the results of our carbon calculations at the conference and looks forward to facilitating a discussion around how we might best account for the cost of our emissions.
