Sustainability: The ISMRM & SMRT Are Committed to Sustainable Events.

To read about what we have done, are currently doing, and what you can do to help, please click here.

One way you can help is by carbon-offsetting your travel to Sydney. This option is available when you register, including a link to a CO2 offset calculator. 100% of CO2 offsets will be donated to Conservation International.

In addition, the Central Office will be using a carbon offset program to calculate total travel (including staff) and the event itself (including meals, electricity used, and shipping), and will report on these efforts in full to the membership at the conclusion of the Sydney meeting.
