We are moving towards a climate-friendly congress: The DGPPN is taking responsibility for the environment and therefore, together with its service providers and partners, has committed itself to sustainability. The goal is to use as few resources as possible at the DGPPN Congress and to reduce the event’s carbon footprint. Our priorities: avoid, balance, offset.
This year the DGPPN will use atmosfair to compensate for the emissions generated by the congress. This will offset 341,000 kg of CO₂.
Atmosfair has calculated the sources of an event’s emissions as follows:
Help protect the climate!
Support the DGPPN in making the DGPPN Congress as climate neutral as possible because participant involvement is crucial for achieving carbon neutrality.
Travel to the congress by train and use local public transport. If possible, choose a sustainable hotel and, when deciding what to eat, pay attention to animal welfare and try to avoid waste. The 4-step concept provides useful guidance: 1. avoid, 2. reuse, 3. recycle, 4. dispose of. You as an individual can also balance and offset your carbon footprint: A contribution of 6 euros (minimum amount) per participant will offset the emissions caused by travel to and from the event and by overnight stays.
The DGPPN task force “Climate and psyche” has developed several concrete measures to make the DGPPN congress climate neutral. These measures will be implemented gradually, with the following steps being implemented this year:
Recycling and waste prevention
Food and catering
Communication and promotion of sustainable behaviour
