Kenes International is committed to integrating responsible business practices into all of our operations not just by words but deeds. Responsibility to our clients, staff, environment and social issues are paramount to all of our decisions, policies and practices.
It is our belief that by employing a Green Culture in the workplace we can duplicate this culture, and the responsibilities it entails, through our core business clients and on-site during our Congresses.
As part of this ongoing learning process we wish to share with you the eco friendly conduct of EANS Annual Meeting 2010.
Green print - The print materials of this Meeting have been printed on recycled paper.
Reducing print – The abstracts will be published on a CD-Rom. If you wish to print any of the abstracts at the Meeting, please look for the printing stations in the exhibition area where you can print your choice of abstracts.
Recycling - As part of our efforts we try to produce less waste. We will also recycle plastic, glass, cans and paper. Before leaving the Meeting, please don’t forget to place your badges in the recycle bin for badges.
Offset your Carbon Footprint - You can contribute to our ecological efforts by offsetting the Carbon Footprint of your travels to EANS Annual Meeting 2010.
A Carbon Offset represents a reduction in emissions somewhere else - like a wind farm in Texas or a reforestation project in Nicaragua - to balance out the emissions you cannot reduce.
You can learn more and offset you carbon foot print at: www.carbonfund.org
Organizing green Congresses all over the world is a real challenge, as green is not only the on-site conduct but the suppliers we are using, the source of the raw materials, the methods of production, management of waste, shipping vs. using local products and fair management of labor throughout the supply chain.
We are doing our best and there is still much to learn. Kenes International is committed to the process.
We will be happy to hear your ideas; please do not hesitate to write to us at: Green@kenes.com
