A Green Conference

AL4 makes every effort to follow good practices of an environmentally-friendly event:

Communication and Publicity

  • We minimize printing; electronic files are used whenever possible
  • A mobile app is used to facilitate communication
  • Physical banners are made with paper, no foam board nor vinyl is used
  • The canvas tote bag and the conference USB are designed to be practical and reusable
  • We choose not to use corsage

Food and Drinks

  • We are cautious about the amount of food ordered
  • No disposable cutlery; we avoid unnecessary wrapping
  • We do not provide plastic bottled water. Participants are encouraged to bring their own mugs
  • We work with the conference dinner provider to come up with a menu with ingredients coming from sustainable sources as much as possible
  • Untouched food surplus will be taken by charity
  • Food waste during lunches and tea break will be sent for composting if appropriate


  • Participants are encouraged to use public transport or carpooling
  • Coaches are arranged to take participants to the conference dinner venue
