Make your event lower carbon

 
 
Organising major events such as international conferences or global sporting occasions can involve a significant carbon footprint
Make your event lower carbon

BP Target Neutral can help you tackle this footprint by identifying areas for action that can reduce emissions and then providing you with a means to offset or neutralise any residual carbon.


We’ve even devised a carbon calculator that can help you build an emissions profile for event activities such as transport, catering and hotel accommodation.

Your event can reduce, replace and offset carbon emissions while also supporting projects that seek to provide economic, social and environmental benefits to the communities they serve.

Lower Carbon Olympics and Paralympics

The Olympic and Paralympics are among the world’s greatest global events


At the London 2012 games, BP Target Neutral offset the carbon emissions associated with the fleet of 5,000 vehicles transporting the Games athletes and officials.

We also provided advice and support to millions of spectators, helping more than half a million of them – a world record – to reduce or offset the carbon emissions that arose from their travel to the Games.

 

We have also partnered with the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), helping to offset all of the organisation’s greenhouse gas emissions from business travel between 2014 and 2018.

These activities have resulted in more than 100,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2e) being offset.

 

 

Like many organisations, the IPC is always working hard to improve its carbon footprint and limit its impact on the environment. Through our international partnership we are delighted that BP Target Neutral has offset the emissions associated with our business travel. This is just one of a number of activities we are implementing to improve our environmental impact.”Xavier GonzalezIPC Chief Executive Officer

 

World Gas Conference

Major conferences draw delegates from around the world to participate in their proceedings and discussions
World gas conference

We partnered with the World Gas Conference (WGC) to help the organisation reduce the carbon footprint associated with running and managing its 2018 event in Washington, US.


As the event ‘Emissions Neutral Champion’, BP Target Neutral arranged the offsetting of carbon emissions from all delegate flights and event shuttle buses.


In 2018 more than 6000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2e) was offset to compensate for delegate travel to and from the event.
