Climate-neutral Urbano Network Event

Carbon calculator report
The TRACK report for the climate-neutral event was created by EventDecision which estimated emissions for this event to be o.105 Tonnes Co2E.
Founder of EventDecision, Matt Grey, remarked: “The emissions associated with this event are low, not only because of the number of attendees and short duration but also due to the mitigation that Church House Westminster has in place already.”.
The equivalent offset value was added to an International Projects account for certification.
Urbano donated £5 for every booking for this event, which was matched with a further £5 each to a fund which set up by one of Urbano’s members who have local business connections in Kyiv. Check out the GoFundMe page for more information.
