ISMRM & SMRT Annual Meeting Sustainability Program

2020 Annual Meeting Sustainability Initiatives

The ISMRM & SMRT Are Committed to Sustainable Events

  • Help us reduce the environmental impact of our meetings by taking part in our carbon-offset program for the 2020 Annual Meeting.

    When you register for the meeting, you will have the option to pay your offset either based on our calculations below or by calculating your own specific CO2 tonnage. The ISMRM will send all moneys collected for carbon offset to Conservation International. To assist in these efforts, we have calculated the mean tonnage, as well as the suggested offset, based on round-trip travel from the cities footnoted below. If you would like to calculate your specific CO2 tonnage, you can use this calculator.

    The ISMRM has selected Conservation International for the Carbon Offset Donations given during the registration process for the Annual Meeting. Please make your donation through the ISMRM or SMRT Annual Meeting registration process so that we can track and report out after the annual meeting the total donations.
