Green events adopt environmentally friendly measures wherever it is possible. The main goal is to reduce their carbon footprint, which is the total set of greenhouse gas emissions caused by the particular event. There are multiple ways to make an event greener such as saving energy, recycling, paperless online event management systems and the minimization of carbon dioxide emissions for travelling delegates. amiando takes responsibility and supports this idea: It provides event professionals with an online registration system that minimizes the environmental impact that results from an event and its delegates.
amiando – Climate Neutral Event Participation – Easy and Transparent
amiando’s online event management software allows event organisers and delegates to be more environmentally-thoughtful. amiando offers the innovative service green ticketing in cooperation with the climate protection consultancyClimatePartner. Not only is amiando’s online registration system completely paperless,amiando now allows delegates to buy CO2 certificates in order to compensate for their carbon dioxide emissions impact. With the integration of the ClimatePartner calculation, each participant´s travel to and from the event, the type of event, the duration of the event, as well as potential attendee accommodation will be accounted for.
Offset carbon dioxide impact Attendee travel to and from an event accounts a large majority of the overall carbon dioxide footprint of an event. The attendees can compensate their CO2 impact by purchasing CO2 certificates when registering for an event. The price for each CO2 certificate depends on the individual attendee’s travel distance as well as the type and the length of the event. The compensation amount is used for example for reforestation projects. Organisers and sponsors can have a share in making event management greener by paying the total cost for compensating the event’s carbon dioxide footprint.

Are green and sustainability issues getting more important? What are the main reasons for event professionals to not act green?
The Green Events Report 2013 is based on a survey amiando conducted and, in which various event organisers worldwide participated.

In cooperation with ClimatePartner, carbon emissions can be balanced and offset through high quality carbon offset projects.
We are going to present you three facts from the report right now and we’ll go further into detail in the following blog entries. So don’t forget to have a look at our blog.
Fact 1: Green Events have a higher importance for event professionals than in previous years
61% of event organisers indicated that green and sustainability issues are higher on their agenda than in the past. 23% of the event organisers say that green issues remain just as important as in previous years.
Fact 2: Green Topics find their ways into event companies
The survey result illustrates that green topics are becoming more important to the event organisers:
A CSR policy is important to a majority of the industry; only 34% of the event professionals do not have such a policy.
Fact 3: Know-how and budgets are restrictions for a more sustainable working practice
The answers to this question are explicit: over 31% indicated that a lack of both knowledge and funds are the main issues. Only 21% explained that their main reason for the lack of more sustainable working practices is due to “time” and “company buying in”.

»Holi« ist eines der vielen indischen Frühlingsfeste des Hinduismus, mit Abstand das populärste und farbenprächtigste indische Fest und wird auch »Fest der Farben« genannt. Holi wird von Hindus in ganz Indien gefeiert, ist in Nordindien dem Gott Krishna (“der höchste Gott”) gewidmet, in Südindien hingegen dem Liebesgott Kama. Zum Holifest sind alle Schranken durch Kasten, Geschlecht, Alter und gesellschaftlichen Status aufgehoben. Es wird ausgelassen gefeiert und man bewirft und bestreut sich gegenseitig mit gefärbtem Puder, dem »Gulal«.
Wir freuen uns euch die ersten Termine der diesjährigen Holi Open Airs bekanntgeben zu können:
