Green MPEC 2019

 

This years Green MPEC!

A few small changes we made with a greener outlook in mind;

  • We offered a digital booklet uploaded onto a memory stick for all delegates to save on paper waste.
  • We selected Bristol as our city to host MPEC 2019. In 2015 Bristol became the UK’s first ever European Green Capital with a drive for creating a sustainable city, Bristol is the perfect host for our green initiative.
  • We offered a range of vegetarian only meals for the event. Vegetarianism has been consistently linked with a more sustainable approach to eating and supporting the 'Green Movement'. Scientists believe that a vegetarian diet has 2.5 times less carbon emissions than a meat based diet.
  • The Marriot Bristol City Centre Hotel do not use unnecessary plastic or single use products, all food was served on reusable crockery. 
  • If you arrived to MPEC via public transport, cycling or walking you will received a free IPEM mug.
  • IPEM Conferences recycle all our badge holders to prevent unnecessary plastic waste. 
  • We offered a walking tour of Bristol for one of our social events, on the tour guests saw the beautiful sights of Bristol in an eco-friendly fashion.

If you have any ideas about how you think we can help support 'greener' conferences, please email us at conferences@ipem.ac.uk.
