WLGF is committed to a sustainable future and has the ultimate ambition of being carbon-neutral. Following expert advice in this, the inaugural year, WLGF will focus, on the environmental impact of the event itself.
This is a first step on an extremely important road towards the sustainability goals that are being developed.
We value the importance of minimising the environmental impact of the event by adopting best practices wherever possible. We encourage our Conversationists, partners and suppliers to do the same and focus on environmentally friendly solutions and respectful treatment of the environment. Based on our mission and insights from our partners, we are aware that a large international event can put a strain on resources and have a negative environmental impact. But, in order to address our responsibility, Women Leaders Global Forum, using the principles of Reduce – Remove – Recycle, has identified the following areas as focus points:
1. THE USE OF ENERGY
2. APPLYING TRAVEL INITIATIVES
4. CATERING THE EVENT
5. SUPPLY CHAIN
6. BEST PRACTICES
