ICT4S Sustainability Policies

Over the years, we have developed a set of informal conference practices, aimed at reducing the environmental impact of the conference:

  • All food served at ICT4S will be vegan.
  • Our catering companies have been instructed to avoid disposable items during refreshment and lunch breaks. Please help our catering staff by returning reusable dishes and cutlery, and choosing to take only what you will eat, to help minimize food waste.
  • The conference will not offer any “swag” as part of registration, nor will it offer conference bags. Most of this just ends up in landfill anyway.
  • Conference badges and lanyards are re-usable. Please return them to the registration desk at the end of the conference.
  • We ask attendees to consider ways of reducing the carbon footprint of travel to the conference.

Please also note that ICT4S now has a code of conduct.
