Greening the EPH Conference
EPH Conference is committed to reducing the environmental impact of the conference and finding ways to be more environmentally responsible. Here are some initiatives we have taken to help minimize the impact of the conference on the environment.
- No beef. Lunches and Conference Dinner do no longer serve beef meat. We encourage the choice for vegetarian lunch and dinner options.
- Reduced printing. Printing of Posters, Announcements, Invitation Letters and marketing materials is reduced by switching to E-Posters, digital marketing and email communication.
- Paperless communication. Abstract submission, registration and invoicing are fully web-based. The Programme Book is printed in limited numbers and only on request. The full Programme and Abstracts can be accessed online and in the EPH Conference App.
- Recycled materials. The Conference Bag is made of recycled materials. The Programme Book uses FSC Mix paper, which means that at least 70% of the wood in the product is from FSC-certified material or recycled material and 30% is from controlled wood from responsible sources.
Travel CO2 neutral
We encourage our delegates to reduce the effect of their air travel on the climate. You can help by flying CO2 neutral with the compensation service of your air travel company.
Our conference suppliers do everything they can to limit the environmental impact of their products and services.
EUPHA's Green Club
EUPHA has established a working group of environmental experts and environment-conscious colleagues to advice both EUPHA and the EPH Conference Foundation in their efforts to reduce the environmental impact of the conference. The Green Club is intended to brainstorm and advice the organisers of the annual EPH Conferences on how to decrease the impact on the environment.
