2How We've Offset Our Carbon

Carbon offsetting enables business to meet climate goals, puts a price on carbon to incentivize further action, and provides monetary support to accelerate the world’s transition to a low-carbon future. Carbon offsets are an internationally recognized way to take responsibility for unavoidable carbon emissions.

ISLA endeavours to offset travel for all ISLA staff and strives to make all ISLA events sustainable and as carbon neutral as possible. In addition to this, in 2023 ISLA has offset a total of 70 tonnes CO2e as a company.
