Whether it’s buses, trains, planes or automobiles used by our attendees, Green Mountain will ensure enough carbon offsets are sourced to balance out those emissions. Once the event has concluded and CO2 emissions have been calculated, Green Mountain will work its eco-magic to ensure we keep our commitment to sustainability and reduce our impact on the environment.
