QUICK GUIDE

STEP 1

Start calculating emissions from your event to determine its emissions. Ideally, this already starts during the planning process. You can save your calculation at any time and complete it later. If you are working on a reoccurring event that does not change much from year to year, you can use information from last year where the current event info is not yet available.



STEP 2

Once event emission are determined, there are two options:

  1. Emissions are offset by the event organizer (i.e. host) upfront and then collected via a mandatory (or optional) "carbon fee" through ticket sales (recommended)
  2. Emissions are offset only via ticket sales (through mandatory or voluntary contribution) to the amount of funding collected

Please note: If you wish to host a "carbon neutral" event without climate impact, all emissions will have to be offset in advance.



STEP 3

CarbonBuddy will prepare material for your event depending on its eligibility and make materials available to you. If all emissions are offset, you can offer your guests a "carbon neutral event".
