Carbon Offsets

Conference organizers are providing $500 to plant 50 trees that will sequester over 62 tons of carbon dioxide via the Go Zero program. Go Zero purchases support The Conservation Fund's efforts to acquire land on behalf of national and state parks or wildlife refuges and to restore that land with native trees that will sequester carbon dioxide over the project's lifetime (estimated at 100 years). While it is difficult to estimate the emissions related to a conference's travel, food, lodging and the facility's energy use, we believe that our sequestration purchase will offset a significant proportion -- or perhaps the totality of our emissions.
