Times are tough, but the green building industry is extremely important and moving forward
Portland, ME (PRWEB) March 20, 2009
IntertechPira has partnered with The CarbonNeutral Company, a world leading carbon offset and carbon management company, to reduce the carbon emissions for this years Eco-Construction Conference, taking place April 21-22nd, in Chicago, IL USA, to net zero
With Eco-Construction 2009 coinciding with Earth Day, IntertechPira felt it was vital that they took responsibility for their own carbon footprint to help tackle climate change. They did this by working with The CarbonNeutral Company to measure and reduce the carbon emissions of the event to net zero. This means that all the CO2 emissions associated with the heating, lighting, waste, supplier and organizer travel were measured and then counter balanced with an equivalent amount of tonne saved by a validated emission reduction project.
Mark La Croix, Executive Vice President, Global Business Development , The CarbonNeutral Company said, "We are delighted to support the work that Eco Construction Conference are doing in taking responsibility for their carbon footprint. Reducing your emissions to net zero helps tackle climate, the next step is communicating and encouraging others within the construction sector that they too can make a difference to the climate by making simple changes."
Acknowledging the challenging economy and tightening corporate travel budgets, IntertechPira is offering a registration price of $500 through Friday, March 27. That's 50% off the standard registration rate. "Times are tough, but the green building industry is extremely important and moving forward," says Barbara Rojas, producer of Eco-Construction 2009.
