Delta-Simons, once again undertook a carbon footprinting and offsetting exercise for this year's WorldView Conference in April 2013. The purpose of the exercise was for Inogen to mitigate the environmental impact of their annual global gathering of Associates and Clients.
The latest Greenhouse Gas (GHG) conversion factors were used to calculate the total carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2eq) emissions. Using these factors it was estimated that a total of approximately 70 tonnes of CO2eq were associated with delegate travel to and from the conference. The total calculated emissions have been offset by 200% by Inogen, and therefore awarded the Delta-Simons ‘Beyond Carbon Neutral' seal of approval. The emissions have been offset using a combination of ‘not-for-profit' verified renewable energy schemes in association with The CarbonNeutral Company and carbon sequestration in the form of UK afforestation in association with the Woodland Trust.
