A Greener Event Impact Slideshow

  1. 1. The environmental impact of IBTTA's 78th Annual Meeting & Exhibition will be reduced with renewable energy and carbon offsets<br />
  2. 2. CO2<br />Globalclimate change<br />Fossil fuel energyconsumption<br />THE PROBLEM<br />greenhousegasses<br />Pollution<br />Carbonemissions<br />
  3. 3. DID YOU KNOW?<br />The U.S. holds less than 5% of the world’s population but produces nearly 25% of global carbon emissions.<br />Scientific American, September 2006<br />
  4. 4. DID YOU KNOW?<br />Commercial and residential buildings alone account for 80% of total electricity expenditures and the production of that electricity accounts for 39% of all CO2 emissions.<br />US Department of Energy, 2007 Buildings Energy Data Book<br />
  5. 5. DID YOU KNOW?<br /><ul><li> Most of the greenhouse gas emissions associated with events originates from travel to and from the event.
  6. 6. Aviation is the fastest growing of all contributions to climate change. </li></ul>FACT: Transportation accounts for over 14% of all global greenhouse gas emissions.<br />US Department of Energy, 20% Wind Energy by 2030<br />
  7. 7. DID YOU KNOW?<br />A conference participant produces greenhouse gasses equivalent to driving their car for roughly one month. <br />USEPA 2000<br />

  9. 9. Our Best Defense: <br /><ul><li>Paired with energy efficiency enhancements, renewable energy and carbon reduction are principal tools in the fight against climate change.</li></ul>Fact:<br />Over 70% of our energy comes from burning fossil fuels, yet still less than 2% comes from renewable sources.<br />American Wind Energy Association<br />
  10. 10. What is a carbon offset?<br /><ul><li> A carbon offset is a quantified reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, often measured in metric tons of carbon dioxide, or its equivalent in other greenhouse gases.</li></ul>FACT: By 2012, carbon offsets generated from international programs are expected to exceed 2.7 billion metric tons.<br />United National Framework Convention on Climate Change<br />

  12. 12. Our Total Commitment<br />By balancing our environmental impact with the purchase of carbon offsets, we will help avoid up to 127,868 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions from being released into the atmosphereas a result of IBTTA's 78th Annual Meeting & Exhibition.<br />
  13. 13. IBTTA’s commitment has a similar impact as:<br />8 average household’s yearly electricity use avoided or<br />526 fully mature trees planted or<br />129,160 miles not driven by an average passenger car or<br />11 average passenger cars off the road for one year<br />
  14. 14. Our offset purchases will benefit the following project:<br />
