At NESEA we're always looking for new ways to reduce the impact that we have on the planet we share. That's why we're proud to announce a new partnership with TripZero that addresses our community's biggest impact—the carbon footprint created by travel to BuildingEnergy events.
The average out-of-town attendee will create 850 pounds of C02 traveling to the BuildingEnergy 16. Many will create more than two tons.
Book one of great hotel deals that you'll find below. Be sure to use the links and codes below for access to these special discounts.
Once you've booked your room, TripZero will calculate your trip's carbon footprint and erase it with certified carbon offsets.
Your reservation enables us to fund reforestation projects around the globe. As these forests grow, they absorb carbon dioxide—the main greenhouse gas driving climate change—eliminating the pollution created by your trip.
We Support: Patagonia Sur
Your trip helps fund the largest native-species reforestation campaign in Chile’s history and the first to receive accreditation under the Verified Carbon Standard. The project plants native-species trees in a pattern that replicates the growth of a natural forest in Patagonia, Chile. During its lifetime, each tree will remove over 1,000 pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere.
