A greener EHA Congress
|The European Hematology Association is committed to implementing sustainable practices during its Congresses & Meetings. We encourage all our delegates to help us make the EHA2023 Hybrid Congress a greener Congress.|
CERTIFICATE OF PARTICIPATION: DIGITAL ONLY
By making the certificate of participation available on the platform, EHA is contributing to saving a large amount of paper. Download your certificate of participation as of Sunday, June 11 from the Congress platform.
TAILOR MADE CONGRESS LUNCH
Food and paper waste are reduced by allowing each participant to assemble his/her own lunch. Help us reduce waste, think twice and pick your favorite items only. The Messe Frankfurt is using sustainable products for everything to do with food and beverages, based on the EU-compliant implementation of the plastic ban on disposable tableware.
Our congress lanyards are made of polyester fiber from recycled PET bottles. This fabric efficiently conserves natural resources and reduce the burden on the natural environment, which is important to EHA. Leave them on dedicated areas for recycle on departure. They are 80% made with renewable energy sourced of solar panels from European production.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT TICKETS OFFERED
In order to reduce CO2 emissions on their daily commute to and from the Congress center, Public Transport Tickets are available for all registered Congress participants, courtesy of the Frankfurt Convention Bureau.
PROPER WASTE MANAGEMENT
Messe Frankfurt is equipped with bins that allow for waste separation and recycling. More than 90% of the waste will be recycled. We encourage our delegates to use them accordingly when disposing waste.
EHA is using sustainable “Rewind” carpet at the Congress, which is the only carpet that has a silver cradle-to-cradle certification in the world.
