The GET helps organizers in calculating the carbon footprint generated due to events. At the same time, this mandatory GET module encourages users to compensate for the nonavoidable greenhouse gas emissions. Organizers may offset using UNFCCC-recognized carbon credits, Global Carbon Council or any other program recognized under CORSIA.
GET’s carbon footprint calculator originated on UN Event GHG calculator. The calculator helps organizers estimate their GHG emissions prior to the event and later measure and compare their actual carbon footprint after the event. Offering a wide scope of GHG calculation, the tool covers carbon emissions linked with venue, international flight travel, local ground transportation, audio-visual systems, accommodation, exhibition and production, communications and catering activities.
