5th DUBROVNIK CONFERENCE ON SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
OF ENERGY WATER AND ENVIRONMENT SYSTEMS
To compensate for the use of power, water, gas and fuel in local transport, as well as use of paper
and generation of waste, 10 tonnes of CO2eq have been offset. The carbon credits used for this
compensation are Verified Emission Reductions (VER) resulting from high quality projects in energy
efficiency, renewables or biogas avoidance in developing countries, using quality standards of
the United Nations. For more information, see www.e-mission.pt > projects > quality assurance.
This offset does not account for the carbon emissions of participants´ air travel.
Conference participants are encouraged to offset the emissions of their own air travel to Dubrovnik (or Split).
For each travel offset purchased online at www.e-missionneutral.org up to one week before the conference,
20% of the net price will be earmarked for the 2009 Dubrovnik Conference Special Assistance Fund.
A simple to use online travel carbon calculator is provided.
This Fund will serve to co-finance the travel or participation costs of interested parties in attending the Conference, who otherwise could not afford to participate. This fund is aimed to benefit participants from countries in Africa interested in participating. Decisions relating to the allocation of this fund are discretionary by the Local Organizing Committee, and potential beneficiaries should contact this Committee for more information.
In addition to the contribution to the Special Assistance Fund, Conference participants who offset their travel carbon emissions will also receive, on arrival in Dubrovnik:
