“We are excited to be the first ever certified carbon neutral Pride event in the country. It’s incredible that we’ll be helping people celebrate diversity in an eco-friendly way,” said Mikael Audebert, Executive Director for Come Out With Pride.
The partnership arrangement also includes COWP’s first ever "Green Zone" at the heart of the event's activities.
