This year's ASM has introduced a range of sustainable initiatives in a bid to try and reduce the conference's carbon footprint and be more environmentally friendly.
This year’s conference handbooks will be printed on recycled paper and have also been reduced in page number, with the Call for Papers abstracts being made available in digital format only. We recognise the desire by many delegates to have a printed copy of this valuable conference resource so we are retaining this, whilst trying to reduce the environmental impact of producing printed materials as much as possible. You can view the extent of the benefits of making the change here.
There will be no delegate satchels distributed at the 2020 event and we are asking delegates to bring their own bag if they think they will need one onsite. We will also be using lanyards made from recycled materials, in lieu of polyester lanyards, and have opted to not use plastic covers to hold the paper badges, instead sourcing a non-tear recyclable paper material for this. All name badge printing will be done via self-service kiosks onsite, minimising any waste from pre-printing badges in bulk.
