CO2-compensation

The 6th International Symposium on Metallomics is to be organized as environmentally friendly as possible. A climate-friendly buffet is included here as well as the environmentally friendly printing of the program and the easy accessibility of the venues through public transport, bike or by foot. Communication and the common will to set a sign plays an important role.

It is striving to organize the event according to the criteria of the Austrian eco-label for green events.
