IACS Implementation of IUGG resolution on reducing our carbon footprint
(Adopted by the IACS Bureau on March 27, 2020, by e-voting)
IACS is committed to supporting IUGG “Resolution 1: Reducing the Carbon Footprint by the Research Community” adopted at the 2019 General Assembly in Montreal, by reducing travel (particularly by air), related to symposia organization and other IACS business.
IACS acknowledges the importance of close ties and communication with the local organizers of IUGG/IACS Assemblies, and will strive to provide input via video-, tele-conferencing or other suitable means, rather than participating in site visits that require carbon-intensive travel. Video-conferencing will also be used to conduct annual bureau meetings between IACS Assemblies and to allow remote participation in bureau meetings at the Assemblies.
