Our environmental commitment
As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability, including our pledge to be carbon neutral by 2020 - we played our part to reduce our environmental footprint at WFIC by:
- Living locally: We built a map of nearby sustainable businesses so conference attendees could quickly find green businesses and restaurants.
- Going digital: All of our content will be digital – no paper.
- No giveaways: We replaced giveaways with charitable donations.
- Carbon offsetting: Attendees visited the Refinitiv booth to offset emissions from their flights to WFIC.
