Eco-Friendly Green Initiatives

Planning a conference can easily consume lots of resources, considering the amount of paper, electricity, food, water and international travel associated with environmental impact and damage.  To ensure that the7th International Congress on Vegetarian Nutrition does everything possible to minimize carbon footprints, the planning committee has taken considerable initiatives and strategies to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.  

Of course, the congress banquet and all meals served will be meatless and mainly composed of wholesome plant foods. Plant-based meals are more sustainable because they use fewer natural resources and are less taxing on the environment in comparison to meat-based meals.
The congress will use products, such as:
  • 100% Cotton, Non-Bleached, Non-Dyed tote bags
  • Reusuable name tag holders
  • Potato Starch Utensils
  • Post Consumer Plates and Napkins
  • Recyclable Cup Sleeves
  • 100% recycled paper content

The food and beverage consumption will thoughtfully apply:

  • No Water Bottles
  • Selecting locally grown fruits and vegetables
  • Recyclable bins for plastic 

Event logistics will inlcude:

  • Passenger Shuttles that provide convenience and large-based transportation
  • Event Décor with fresh flowers, live plants, and biodegradable balloons
