WWF Climate Witness


WWF Climate Witness Program holds a live press event across Spain, Europe with speakers attending in Norway, US, and Australia.

“Since the beginning of our relationship with CO2 Neutral Conferencing we have run several events across the world. Due to their expertise and knowledge these events have been highly successful and well received.”

 

The Organisation: Best known as the world’s leading conservation body, WWF, have seen first-hand how wildlife, the environment and human activity are all interlinked. Their passion for safeguarding the natural world, therefore, has to be backed up by other environmental action – tackling the global threat of climate change (through our big global campaigns like Earth Hour) and helping people to change the way they live to ease pressure on natural resources.

WWF is at the heart of global activities in all these areas. We have teams of highly skilled professionals working with governments, businesses and communities around the world.

The Problem: WWF Climate Witness program wanted to hold a live press event in Spain, Europe, but had speakers from Norway, US, Australia attend. Being a charity they didn’t have the budget to fly everyone around the world and also didn’t want to cause the carbon emissions to do so.

The Solution: CO2 Neutral Conferencing created a HD Video Conferencing solution that was delivered live to the venue. It was a fully managed live event with full HD lifesize images of the speakers presented on-stage to the audience and press. We managed every aspect of  the solution – hiring Video Conferencing suites around the world for the different presenters then used our hosted video bridge to connect all locations together. We gave extensive courtesy remote presenter training to all speakers so they know the format and layout of the event and felt comfortable with the technology. By doing so we managed to save 65,466 km travelled, which equates to 7.3 tonnes of carbon emissions and ultimately a $40,000 cost saving to the charity.

“Since the beginning of our relationship with CO2 Neutral Conferencing we have run several events across the world. Due to their expertise and knowledge these events have been highly successful and well received. Their carbon neutrality is definitely a big bonus to WWF. We have spread our message about Climate Witness to more people across the globe; at a significantly reduced cost whilst at the same time reducing our carbon footprint.”
