2020 ASM POSTPONED – Click here for further details...
ANZSGM 2020 ASM Melbourne 19 - 21 May 2021

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. 

Carbon Offset Option

In-keeping with the sustainability focus of this year’s ASM, we are encouraging all delegates to consider offsetting their carbon footprint from attending the conference via Greenfleet, a registered not for profit organisation.  

Greenfleet will use your contribution to offset your carbon emissions through planting native biodiverse trees in Australia. 

For further details, and to confirm your carbon offset amount, please visit their website: https://sforce.co/2T7IIm5

It costs as little as $2 per person to offset your conference attendance, and there are options to increase this donation if you will be travelling by plane or car to attend the event.

Please list your company on the payment page as ANZSGM 2020 when purchasing your carbon offset so we are able to track the contributions the conference has made when the event has concluded.  Thank you in advance!

Conference Handbooks

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.

Conference Accessories

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.
