A Sustainable Partnership

To deliver our greenest conference yet, AFAC24 powered by INTERSCHUTZ is once again partnering with Trace – a sustainability consulting company that removes the barriers to climate action and empowers businesses to take immediate steps forward.

Active Initiatives

pictureThe AFAC24 team is thrilled to continue and grow our existing efforts and introduce further sustainable practices at the event, such as:

  • Making multiple water stations available throughout the event to mitigate the amount of single-use plastic bottles purchased
  • Producing biodegradable and recyclable event materials, such as the event lanyards, badge pouches, delegate satchels, pocket guides and tote bags
  • Carbon offsetting all speaker and staff flights booked
  • Co-locating the Institution of Fire Engineers (Australia) National Conference and the Australian Disaster Resilience Conference to reduce the carbon footprint involved with travelling to multiple events.
  • Hosting the event at the International Convention Centre, Sydney helps us to increase our sustainable practices. By partnering with a sustainably conscious venue we are supported by the comprehensive practices that underpin all the centre's daily operations. To find out more visit:


AFAC23 powered by INTERSCHUTZ - Sustainability Wrap Up

At the conclusion of AFAC23 powered by INTERSCHUTZ, the team examined the event data to calculate our carbon footprint using the Trace program.

The credits purchased by the AFAC Team, offset the impact of our 2023 event and contributed towards a variety of sustainability initiatives. The funded initiatives invest in the future of our planet locally and abroad. To find out more about our offsetting efforts see the the summary available here.
