Low-carbon conferencing: CO2e, experiments and lessons learned.

How can we organize an international conference and at the same time, reduce our climate impact? This became the central question while organising our third edition of the Beyond Oil conference. We are happy to reveal that our 2019 conference halved the emissions of the previous conference in 2017.
