The annual carbon footprint for the global event industry is the same as the yearly emissions of the entire United States. The event industry is responsible for more than 10% global CO₂ emissions.
MEETYOO’s vision is to decarbonise the event industry by creating outstanding digital events allowing organisers, participants, and exhibitors to connect realistically in a customised virtual space without travelling. With this, MEETYOO's customers prevent additional pollution by several million tons of CO2 emissions each year. The technology does a lot to help decarbonise the event industry and now the team is eager to reduce its own operational emissions and reach their net zero target.
Decarbonising the events industry is a true challenge and MEETYOO is up to take on the challenge by starting its own decarbonisation journey. The company measures its operational carbon emissions, using the essential version of Plan A’s emissions management software.
Based on the emissions analysis, the software delivers strategies for reduction planning with suppliers and partners. Once reduction strategies are implemented, MEETYOO is able to compensate for emissions that cannot be reduced otherwise, in order to reach net-zero.
Thanks to the carbon management system provided by Plan A, MEETYOO obtained a rigorous scientific baseline emissions measurement for 2021. MEETYOO’s sustainability commitment is strengthened by the ability to utilise Plan A's compensation portfolio and engage with certified environmental organisations. Last but not least, the event company is starting to work with Plan A's sustainability leaders on reduction planning to help them reach their net zero targets.
