AIME 2008 to set new benchmark as climate neutral event

BARCELONA - AIME 2008, the 16th Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo, will set a new benchmark for exhibitions in Australia, following the announcement yesterday that it will be a Climate Neutral event. Reed Travel Exhibitions (RTE) announced the initiative at EIBTM here. AIME Climate Neutral is a joint initiative of Melbourne Convention + Visitors Bureau (MCVB), RTE and Climate Friendly, an Australian organisation committed to providing real climate change solutions. Based on information and data provided by RTE, MCVB and Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre (MECC) on AIME 2007, Climate Friendly has assessed and calculated the carbon footprint of the event. To neutralise these emissions, Climate Friendly has provided AIME with 100 percent accredited GreenPower energy from a wind farm in South Australia and neutralised remaining emissions by purchasing carbon credits from a Kyoto compliant wind farm in China. AIME 2008 will have emissions neutralised from the event's electricity use, paper consumption, meals, hosted buyer flights and accommodation, all coach transportation and staff travel. AIME 2008 will be held at the MECC on 19 & 20 February.
