ICAO Launches Green Meetings Calculator

5 December 2012: The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has released the Green Meetings Calculator to help UN organizations reduce their carbon emissions from airplane travel to meetings. The ICAO Green Meetings Calculator can help facilitate the process of selecting a meeting venue when accounting for the carbon footprint associated with air travel.

The application identifies an optimal meeting location based on calculated carbon emissions, as well as other parameters, and identifies all possible city venues accessible by a direct or one-stop connecting flight. ICAO has made the Green Meetings Calculator accessible as a smart phone application in the Apple App Store. [Greening the Blue Press Release] [ICAO Green Calculator Users Guide]
