CHART – the biggest art fair in the Nordics goes sustainable

To our greatest pleasure the event industry started to focus more and more on sustainability. Oftentimes making an event greener means exchanging single use plastic with a biodegradable alternative. “While this effort is most noticeable for the eyes, if you look behind the curtain, you will find that plastic waste is not the highest polluting aspect of events. At most events, it is the transportation of guests that makes up 73% of total carbon emissions.While these efforts are definitely important, if we study deeper the carbon footprint of an event it turns out that transportation is responsible for the 73% of it. So, when asking the question how could we offset an event’s CO2 footprint, the answer is clear: start  focusing on more sustainable means of transportation.
