PCO-CONVIN Goes Green!


PCO-CONVIN SA will be the first Greek company within the Organizing and Coordinating Congresses and Events Sector that will make a Medical Scientific Event in Greece Green, Carbon Neutral and Climate Friendly.

 PCO-CONVIN SA took a strategic decision to start managing the emitted greenhouse gases that are associated with its events and congresses and also those that are associated with its daily business activities, i.e. to control and reduce them. PCO CONVIN will calculate, account and offset the Total Carbon Footprint, in order for a Meeting to become Green, Carbon Neutral and Climate Friendly.

In addition, a plan will be devised for the gradual implementation of PCO CONVINs’ forthcoming congresses and events as well as for its business activities;

To this end PCO CONVIN is co-operating with GREEN EVOLUTION S.A., a company specialized in Greenhouse Gas Management. Green Evolution will apply the methodology and the procedures of its CO2 Neutral Seal, an Innovative Offsetting Service it has created for the Carbon Emissions

The seminar «1st Joint Training Program on Systemic Autoimmune Rheumatic Diseases», which was organized by the Department of Pathophysiology – Medical School of the University of Athens and the Division of Rheumatology of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA became an event that is climate friendly and environmentally friendly, by applying the methodology and the procedures of the Neutral Seal, the innovative service of counterbalancing the CO2 emissions. The carbon footprint was calculated according to the World Resources Institute / World Business Council for Sustainable Development protocol (the GHG protocol), by applying a direct and complete approach and in full compliance to the ISO 14064 standard.
