"Climate-neutral to the BAU": A service for all trade fair visitors
thinkstep and the DGNB jointly provided a unique offer for all visitors at the BAU. All trade show visitors had the chance to receive a free compensation for their CO2 emissions during their stay and their travel to and from the BAU. Using thinkstep's SoFi Software, the individual carbon footprint was calculated, which was compensated by DGNB and thinkstep after the BAU.
The CO2 emissions were compensated by our partner South Pole via a portfolio of three different projects:
- Reforestation in Colombia
- Landfill Gas Capture in China
- SCG Biomass to Energy Project in Thailand
We hare happy to announce that we compensated 42,5t CO2 of in total 216 visitors at the BAU. More than 50% of the CO2 emissions are based on the airplane as a means of transport. The lowest CO2 emission calculated at the BAU was 4kg CO2 for a visitor who lived in Munich. The highest value was 3,7t CO2, compensated for a visitor who came from HongKong. The average visitor emitted around 198kg CO2.
