IBECC and the Environment
Organisers of IBECC have implemented a series of measures to ensure the event is environmentally responsible.
The conference has been planned according to EarthCheck’s guidelines. EarthCheck is the world’s leading scientific benchmarking certification and advisory group for sustainable travel and tourism.
Committee meetings for IBECC were conducted virtually to reduce travel, and all attendees and speakers have been encouraged to offset carbon emissions during the booking process.
Other than name badges, there will be no printed materials at IBECC. All delegate information will be published via a dedicated app. The name badges are made from recyclable materials and will not use clear plastic covers. The lanyards are also constructed from sustainable materials.
Venues and experiences included in the program have been strategically selected for their own commitment to conservation and environment, including the Cairns Convention Centre, Crystalbrook Collection and Reef Magic.
Those who attend IBECC will take part in the Great Reef Census, helping to provide timely and vital data to scientists and marine part managers. Geo-tagged trees will also be provided at the conference and then planted into the Daintree Rainforest to encourage restoration as part of our partnership with Climate Force.
The purpose of IBECC is to help businesses and investors integrate and measure sustainability in ways that will benefit their operations and improve the world we live in.
We are pleased to be fostering these critical insights and conversations in a forum with limited impact on the environment.
