IAS 2009 Goes Green

The International AIDS Society (IAS) has taken extra steps to reduce the environmental impact of IAS 2009, including using local suppliers with good social responsibility policies, offsetting carbon emissions, reducing the number of printed publications, and printing on recycled/Forest Stewardship Council-certified paper. Surplus food and delegate bags will be donated to local schools, and Eco Points situated throughout the conference venue have provided delegates a place to recycle glass, cans, paper and plastic.
