Climate Conscious Actions

​The Australasian Land and Groundwater conference was the most sustainable conference possible.

Actions have been put in place to better respect our environment during the conference. We strongly encouraged our delegates, visitors, exhibitors and sponsors to adopt the following actions wherever possible:

  • No single-use plastic

  • Extra bins were available for different waste purposes: general waste, compost, recycling

  • Reusable water bottle – water stations were available to fill them up

  • Carpooling – travel to the conference with a group of your peers or use 1 Uber/Taxi for a few people instead of traveling on your own (and share the fun)

  • Options for vegetarians and vegans 

  • No printed program, the program was available online only via QR Code

  • Virtual Satchel

  • The most carbon-neutral booth has been elected and announced at the Conference Dinner - congratulations to Bright Environmental

  • We strongly encouraged our exhibitors to provide sustainable goodies
