CWT has launched a new meetings and events (M&E) carbon footprint calculator combining travel, hotel stays, meeting space and food & beverage carbon consumption information for corporate events up to 50,000.
Supported by carbon intelligence platform Thrust Carbon, the CWT M&E carbon calculator analyses and reports on individual and collective delegate carbon emission and waste data for the entire event lifecycle, from planning to completion. It maps emission data against each individual customer’s own carbon benchmarks for current and future events.
The M&E carbon calculator launch follows an intensive six-month pilot program, with CWT extensively testing the tool on its own and select customer events.
“This year, in-person meetings have outstripped virtual and hybrid events by ten to one,” said Ian Cummings, global head at CWT Meetings & Events.
“With nearly all of our M&E customers and prospects citing ambitious long term corporate sustainability goals for their organisations – whether they run ongoing strategic meetings management programs or individual large-scale events, we are helping them realize their carbon-emissions reduction strategies.”
