Abstract

Organizing international conferences leads to significant amounts of emitted greenhouse gases (GHG's). This is mainly due to the transport of the attendees to the conference venue. At IEEE-VPPC'14, actions were taken to reduce and to compensate the conference GHG emissions as well as to raise public awareness. This paper describes these actions and presents a quantitative estimation of the GHG sources related to the conference.
