It is developed, hosted, and maintained by UNEP, the UNFCCC secretariat, and the Gulf Organization for Research & Development (GORD). GET targets decarbonization and sustainable development by focusing on environmental impacts of conferences, meetings, exhibitions, trade fairs, sporting events. etc. From transportation and lodging to paper trails, catering, and energy use, the GET provides an all-encompassing approach that identifies ways to host eco-friendly events with reduced carbon footprint and other impacts.

This policy also covers personal data collected from GET Tool Web Application. We take the privacy of your Personal Data seriously. Because of that, we have created this Privacy Policy. Please read this Privacy Policy as it includes important information regarding your Personal Data and other information.

GET Application provides a platform where an Event Organizer can register and create an event profile that can be assessed to provide consultation  to encourage and facilitate actions to reduce the carbon footprint of the event at the planning and implementation stages via:

  1. Documentation of activities and calculation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (carbon footprint).
  2. Transparent reporting of the calculated carbon footprint and actions to reduce it or avoid it.
  3. Third-party verification process (optional but encouraged).
  4. Encouraging the use of high-quality carbon credits to offset the GHG emissions that were not avoided.

Thus, the end users are only the organizations that are planning to have carbon neutral events and information related to events and KYC information to ensure the authenticity of the Organization and event is collected.

The GET application is for Event Organizers only and The Event Organizer is not going to provide any service to any other user using GET application.
