Neutral Event: make your event carbon neutral
How it works
We calculate and reduce
Involve participants directly
But let the people attending your event choose which project to support - you will surprise them by making them feel an active part of your sustainable initiative.
Up2You provides you with customizable tickets to distribute to attendees. To use them, they can choose from two ways:
- scan the QR code that will take them to the site where they can enter the code
- type in the link on the browser and enter the code.
In this way you give those who will be present the opportunity to generate a positive impact on the planet.
How compensation occurs
Communicate your commitment
They chose Neutral Event
For the 10-year anniversary of the Technology Forum, we decided to invest in the sustainability of the event together with Up2You to give a strong signal to our community of the commitment and need to move from 'saying' to 'doing'. Thanks to U2Y we were able to offset the emissions of an event that was attended by hundreds of people both in attendance and connected from all over the world and to raise awareness on these issues.
Thanks to Up2You, we managed to create an innovative event with a concrete and direct impact on the territory!

Up2You is a start-up company that helps companies reduce their environmental impact and neutralise CO₂ emissions in response to the challenge of the millennium: tackling climate change. To this end, it offers cross-sectoral services for all types of business that want to make a commitment to environmental protection: starting with calculating the environmental impact and then choosing the best project to neutralise CO₂ emissions produced by work activities.
Organising and running an event has an impact in terms of CO₂ emissions. Making it Carbon Neutral means taking responsibility for your own environmental impact and contributing to the protection of the planet.
In addition, the events industry is increasingly looking for unique experiences for participants and environmental sustainability is a topic that is increasingly meeting with public interest. Up2You offers you the possibility to actively involve the participants in your event by giving them the opportunity to choose the international project to support in order to neutralise the impact of the event.
Up2You's technical team has many years of experience in the field of impact analysis and Carbon Footprint: using international standards for the calculation of CO₂ emissions as a reference, we will guide you through the calculation process.
Up2You neutralises CO₂ by supporting nature-based and technology-based Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) projects, i.e. internationally certified environmental protection projects with the sole objective of capturing or not emitting CO₂ into the atmosphere. Up2You has decided to use this solution because it meets the two fundamental criteria for a project to be considered Carbon Neutral: the additionality criterion and the calculation of CO₂ captured or reduced on an annual basis.
Additionality criterion: the project is designed with the sole purpose of capturing and/or reducing CO₂, which is additional to what would normally occur. This ensures that the objective of the project is exclusively the capture of CO₂ and that all funding resources are invested for this sole purpose, while strictly avoiding the project becoming an ancillary activity to the main activity.
Calculation of captured or reduced CO₂ on an annual basis: emissions are calculated on the basis of the CO₂ actually reduced or captured in the current year. It is extremely important to capture CO₂ emitted today, and not in subsequent years: by supporting certified projects, Up2You ensure that neutralised emissions relate to CO₂ that has already been captured.
Environmental projects developed under the Verified Carbon Standard programme are certified, third-party audited and traceable. To be certified, they follow a rigorous assessment process, meet the additionality criterion and cover a wide range of sectors, including forest and ecosystem conservation, renewable energy, forestry and others. Verra, the international body that develops and manages carbon credits (the unit of measurement used for neutralisation), keeps a public register with the names of companies that have redeemed credits and thus supported certified environmental protection projects.
