Tips on sustainability
  • If you are not staying at one of the hotels recommended by the conference organisers, look for accommodation that is close to the venue so that you can reach it on foot, or that is close to the public transport network.
  • Do not change your towels daily, unless strictly necessary.
  • Set the thermostat or air conditioning system in your room to between 20 and 25 degrees, and turn it off when you leave.
  • Turn out the lights in your room whenever you leave the hotel.
  • Use water responsibly. Turn taps off when you are brushing your teeth or while you soap up; choose a shower rather than a bath and avoid changing your towels too often.
