The calculated CO2 footprint of the Future Forward Summit is 20 tons of CO2 equivalents. This emission corresponds to the emission of 8 return flights Brussels - New York (in economy class). These tons are fully compensated by supporting the 'Saving Trees' project in Uganda. As you can see in this chart, about 95% of total emissions is due to mobility (mainly participants who came by plane).
