Conventa Trend Bar 2022: GREEN MOBILITY with Jakob Sterlich


8 November 2022 from 14:00 to 15:30

Conventa Trend Bar returns for another season of insightful online events. Each one will be dedicated to a different facet of the sustainable transformation of events and host a new expert.

Did you know that transport and mobility account for 20% of global carbon dioxide emissions?

We have less than 8 years left before we cross the 1,5 degrees global warming line, the consequences of which will be catastrophic and irreversible. One of the key areas we need immediate and long-term CO2 emission reductions in is mobility.

Together with transport, it accounts for around 20% of global carbon dioxide emissions and in most live events, when full participants mobility is counted in the event carbon footprint, it will represent the most CO2 intensive category.

What does this mean for the event and tourism industry and what can and needs to be done to contribute to the 1,5 Paris Agreement target? Is the solution to be found in reducing the emission intensity (finding new, climate friendlier ways to travel) or reducing the frequency (travelling less)?

On Tuesday, 8 November 2022 from 14:00 to 15:00, we will be joined by Jakob Sterlich, CEO of ClimatePartner Austria, who will share his insights and show you how you can accelerate climate action of your company and events.
