New Hope Network Pursues CarbonNeutral® Event Certification for 2022 Natural Products Expo East
BOULDER, Colo., July 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Informa Markets’ New Hope Network has announced it will pursue CarbonNeutral® Event Certification for the first time at Natural Products Expo East 2022, which will be held September 28th through October 1st in Philadelphia. By going carbon neutral, Natural Products Expo East continues to reduce as much greenhouse gas emissions as possible and compensate for the remaining carbon emissions the trade show emits (via attendee travel, hotel stays and energy use, for example) through the purchase of high-quality ICROA-approved carbon offsets.
CarbonNeutral® Event Certification is a designation that demonstrates Natural Products Expo East has achieved carbon neutrality in line with the CarbonNeutral® Protocol. This third-party verified certification is administered by Climate Impact Partners, and is a global standard managed for over 20 years to deliver clean, conclusive and transparent carbon neutral programs.
Pursuing the CarbonNeutral® Event Certification is the next component of an expansive program by New Hope Network that includes several key components:
- Offsetting the water/electricity usage for event venues and host hotels while working closely with venues on ways to reduce energy use.
- Partnering with Terracycle to recycle all wall and railing clings, PPP and hard to recycle materials.
- Continuing to lower paper use and transition collateral to digital.
- A donation of over 217,122 pounds of leftover food to charity partner Second Harvest, the largest donation to date.
