EAGE Green Fund
For many years, EAGE has been contributing to the offset of the carbon footprint of our speakers who travel all over the world to give lectures. In 2010, the EAGE Board decided to launch the EAGE Green Fund.
Facts EAGE Green Fund
- From all registration fees for EAGE events one euro (€1) will be put in the Green Fund
- This will be supplemented with a contribution by EAGE
- The money raised in this way will be utilized to initiate and support geoscience and engineering environmental initiatives.
- No increase in cost for our members!
A survey was sent out by e-mail in June to our entire membership base to establish what our members think is the best investment for EAGE. Many ideas have already been launched, such as installing solar panels for the EAGE Head Office, investing in renewable energy projects in general such as wind, water and solar power or in geo-thermal projects or other geoscience related projects, and so on.
We will keep you updated about the green fund in the coming years. We have already received some good feedback and welcome any other suggestions you may have.
