Sustainable conferencing

Creating a sustainable conference is crucial in today’s world to reduce environmental impact and promote responsible practices. By integrating sustainable principles into every aspect of the event, we can minimise waste, conserve resources, and inspire attendees to adopt eco-friendly habits.



The ACEM ASM 2023 is making every effort to reduce the carbon footprint and ensure sustainability practices are being followed where possible:

Delegate Satchels

The Meeting will not offer delegate satchels to reduce our waste to landfill.

Name Badges

We encourage all delegates to return their name badges at the conclusion of the Meeting so that they can be repurposed for other events. 

Meeting App

We are proud that our Meeting app includes all program and sponsorship information, reducing the need for printed programs. Our app allows delegates to engage across all aspects of the event including Q&A with session facilitators and connecting with one another. We highly encourage all delegates to download the app and kindly refrain from asking or accepting any printed documents.


There are lots of options out there for delegates travelling interstate or internationally to attend our conferences who want to offset CO2. Most airline companies offer this as part of their booking process.
