Climate change is one of the most serious threats facing global society today. Here at ICIAS2010, we are aware that efforts must be made to reduce our carbon footprints as much as we can. If that is difficult, then we should offset the emissions that we cannot reduce now. In conjunction with the World Engineering, Science and Technology Congress (ESTCON2010) and six other conferences (ITSIM2010, ICPER2010, ICFAS2010, ICSBI2010, ICPEAM2010, ICIPEGC2010), we are embarking on a carbon offset project to compensate the amount of carbon emissions that have been generated in organizing these events.

Tree Planting

With the kind help of our tree planting partners and sponsors, tree planting ceremonies will be conducted by the participants during various technical tours which will showcase some fine examples of green buildings and best sustainable practices in Malaysia. The technical tour destinations are:

  • Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS campus in Tronoh, Perak – recipient of 2007 Aga Khan Award for Architecture

UTP UTP

 

Malaysia Energy Centre

 

  • Tanarimba in Bukit Tinggi, Pahang – sustainable homes and lifestyles ... more

Tanarimba

 

Finally, it is also hoped that this carbon offset project will raise the awareness of the impacts that our lifestyles have on the climate.
