What is Web Summit doing to address its carbon footprint?

Web Summit has partnered with Schneider Electric to help advance our goal of reducing carbon impact and becoming a more sustainable conference. After the event, sustainability experts from Schneider Electric will measure the event’s carbon footprint by gathering data on actual event energy consumption and attendee travel. Once the carbon footprint of the event has been identified, we will use renewable energy attribute certificates (EACs) and verified carbon offsets to address the event’s emissions.

Learn more about these two strategies below.

Schneider Electric is a great partner for Web Summit. As a company, Schneider Electric is also committed to decarbonization, for itself and its customers and partners, and it provides innovative services and solutions to develop emission reduction and renewable energy procurement strategies. The company is leading the future of sustainable energy, recently announcing it will reach its own carbon neutral goal by 2025, five years earlier than expected.
