PHUSE Go Green

Change is underway! Throughout 2020 PHUSE is embarking on an ambitious plan to reduce its carbon footprint and take an environmentally mindful approach to help create a sustainable earth. 

During the year you will see a number of green initiatives launched, as we strive towards this goal to accomplish positive changes for our planet and minimise our environmental impact.

 

So far:

  • We have removed 30+ paper flyers from the Connect delegate bags and put these online.
  • We have taken steps to create an App and therefore cut down on the size of the brochures.
  • We no longer use the large plastic wallets for name badges at events.
  • We are a globally spread Board, so have less face-to-face meetings and more monthly teleconferences.

We are striving to…

  • Utilise technology to cut down on paper use.
  • Reduce single-use plastic wherever possible.
  • Streamline our conference material.
  • Reduce travel carbon offset for the PHUSE Board of Directors and the Office team.
