The fair will be climate compensated with 1 ton carbon dioxide equivalents (GWP100) per company through the tool klimatkompensera.se. This number is estimated by comparing climate compensation with other virtual fairs. The goal in the future is to calculate Utnarms own climate impact to see where the largest emissions are, so that we can reduce them and not just compensate for them.
The climate compensation is included in the fair fee of the 88 exhibitors, and therefore a total of 88 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents will be compensated and you can find the certificate here. The founded project is called Tropical Mix and is of tree planting in Panama to reduce deforestation, reduce art extinction and carbon sequestration . The project is certified with Gold standard, FSC and UTZ. You can read more about climate compensation and the project at: https://tricorona.se/project/tropical-mix/
Utnarm’s official sustainability work started in the year 2019 with being certified by Håll Sverige Rent as sustainable. Utnarm has since then continued to develop our sustainability work and will evaluate this year’s work and pass on suggestions to next year’s Convenor. Next year Utnarm will hopefully have a sustainability certification as well as exact climate compensation calculations. Utnarm will also evaluate the marketing of exhibitors' environmental work. If you have any questions or suggestions on how to continue Utnarm’s work, please contact Convenor of Utnarm.
