Sustainability

We are proud to announce that the Georgia Climate Conference is an Emory University Sustainable Gold Certified Event. The Emory’s Sustainable Events Certification helps event planners and organizers create events that support Emory’s sustainability vision by reducing environmental and social impacts. We achieved this designation by eliminating styrofoam from the waste stream of the conference, providing compostable and reusable materials for food service, serving vegetarian and vegan food options and reducing unnecessary paper and marketing materials.

As a part of this certification, we ask for your participation in sustainable actions at the conference by: - Bringing your own reusable water bottle - Reusing your name tag for both days of the conference - Disposing of waste in proper receptacles for compost, recycling and landfill - Considering alternative transportation as a means to attend the conference
