Since 2018, the EGU gives General Assembly participants the opportunity to offset the carbon emissions resulting from their travel to and from Vienna by contributing to a carbon offsetting scheme when they register to the meeting. In 2019, participants to the conference will be able to donate to one of three different carbon-offset projects by choosing the carbon-offsetting option when registering to the meeting.

Depending on the origin of your travel we charge you an amount to compensate your CO2 emission. The money collected from you will then be forwarded to to be invested in your selected project:
