MyClimate carbon-neutrality label

Based on a partnership with myclimate, CISBAT 2021 will be "carbon neutral". Offset of an estimated 160 tons of CO2 emissions  (including participants' travel and lodging, infrastructure, meals etc.) will benefit high-quality myclimate climate protection projects.

... and more

  • To reduce the environmental footprint further, CISBAT 2021 will offer the possibility of remote attendance; it actively encourages remote participation especially for participants whose travels would include long-haul flights (air travel to and from the conference was responsible for 90% of CISBAT 2019 emissions).
  • We invite participants from Europe to travel by train. For a calculation of CO2 emissions that can be avoided by travelling by rail and estimation of travel times enter your trip in  . Often the difference in travel time and cost is not as high as expected!

  • We distribute less printed matter and generally use recycled paper (or FSC if unavoidable).
  • Much less meat - thanks to our cooks' creativity, we will be able to provide excellent lunches and also a well appreciated cocktail reception without meat or fish.
  • All electricity consumed at EPFL is green!
