LEAP 2021 IS CARBONZERO CERTIFIED
While COVID-19 has tremendously slowed the frequency and size of in-person events, virtual gatherings and conferences have seen a dramatic increase. And even though fewer people are travelling to in-person events in their vehicles and on airplanes, there are some new and residual environmental impacts associated with virtual gatherings that can be measured.
We are proud to work with Carbonzero Canada to make the LEAP 2021 virtual event Carbonzero Certified. By estimating the carbon footprint of event attendee’s offices – whether they participate from home or from their workplace - we will be able to measure the carbon impact of the server electricity use that is needed to operate video conferencing solutions and then purchase high-quality carbon offsets to help mitigate the climate impact.
