Carbon efficient travel
With IBA conferences taking place in major business centres all over the world, travel is an unavoidable reality for our delegates. The IBA encourages its members and delegates to be responsible and conscious of the impact travel has on the environment and to take measures to reduce the carbon impact of their travel.

Some suggested steps that delegates can take include:

  • Travel by train instead of flying if possible.
  • Book direct flights instead of connecting flights, if available, as limiting the number of stops needed will reduce your carbon footprint.
  • Consider the impact of the travel class that you book – business class travel equates to three times the carbon footprint of economy class.

Relying on the local public transport is the more carbon friendly option, but this is not always a realistic option. Where reliance on taxis/cars is needed use electric vehicles over petrol or diesel and share vehicle usage with other delegates and colleagues.

Speaker opportunities

If you would like to be considered as a potential speaker at this specialist conference then please contact the relevant Chair/Co-Chairs in the IBA Women Lawyers' Committee with your request; please send your bio together with information on your qualification and expertise on the topic.
