A Sustainable Partnership

To deliver our greenest conference yet, AFAC23 powered by INTERSCHUTZ has partnered with Trace – a sustainability consulting company that removes the barriers to climate action and empowers businesses to take immediate steps forward.

Active Initiatives

pictureThe AFAC23 team is thrilled to continue our existing efforts and introduce new 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, the Australian Disaster Resilience Conference and the Women and Firefighting Australasia Conference to reduce the carbon footprint involved with travelling to multiple events.

At the conclusion of AFAC23 powered by INTERSCHUTZ, the team will examine the event data to calculate our carbon footprint using the Trace program. Credits will be purchased to offset this impact and contribute towards a variety of sustainability initiatives.

Our sustainability efforts and the projects supported will be shared online by AFAC after the event, as well as feature in the event’s Post Show Report.
