CO2 emissions at events: Have you ever stopped to consider what makes up the lion’s share of your carbon footprint? The answer is travelling. Up to 70 percent of emissions are in fact generated by guests’ departure and arrival. So what’s the story with your event? Pro Sky’s new CO2 Calculator reveals the answers.
“Up to 70 percent of CO2 emissions are generated going to and from events,” explains Daniel van Bühren, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at Pro Sky. The parameters of each particular event play an important role, but in total, travelling nevertheless makes up a large proportion of the carbon footprint from events.

Fully tailored to group flights for the first time
Up until now, it has proved difficult to always monitor this figure transparently. Many CO2 calculators would only take into consideration individual bookings on scheduled flights. Pro Sky’s new tool is a different story: Here it’s all about groups. That’s not the only advantage. Along with the length of the route, the calculator also takes into account the type of aircraft chosen. This makes results even more precise and easier to compare.
CO2 Calculator: Easy to use, but with lots of hidden power
Two strong partners have brought together all their know-how for the calculations: Pro Sky and atmosfair. For many years, the climate protection organisation has been deeply committed to dealing with the environmental impact of flying. The result is a tool for the special demands of the event business. “Just the right basis for agencies and companies that want to demonstrate responsibility for the environment when travelling to and from events,” said Daniel van Bühren.
