The Global Compact aims to minimize the environmental impacts of the Rio+20 Corporate Sustainability Forum. Sponsorship packages to help offset the event's carbon footprint are currently available, and more information can be found here.
The Forum will be the first ever UN event to be labelled WindMade - meaning that the event will be exclusively powered by wind energy. WindMade, the organization behind the first global consumer label for organizations using wind power, is the official Sustainability Partner of the Rio+20 Corporate Sustainability Forum, ensuring that the environmental impact of the event is minimized through all phases of planning and execution.
Wind power procurement will cover 100 percent of Forum's electricity footprint, including event preparations at the UN Global Compact's offices, power usage at the Windsor Barra Hotel and electricity used at social events. In order to achieve this, the UN Global Compact has committed to procuring the equivalent amount of GoldPower, a high quality energy-based product. The power is derived from windfarms in developing countries (with no Kyoto targets), thereby stimulating investments in new capacity. This commitment is compliant with the requirements set out in WindMade's Events Standard (Appendix C).
The Global Compact Office strongly encourages all participants to help offset carbon emissions generated by the Forum and related travel. The voluntary carbon offset contribution for each participant is USD 45 and will be collected at the time of registration.
