Food for Good | Symposia

Over the years Symposia has been implementing a large number of operational best practices for the daily running of its structure and all its events, from the selection of materials according to eco-sustainability criteria and the energy efficiency of the equipment, to the procedures for possible work peaks and for the replacement of absent staff.

Our conferences are environmentally-friendly events promoting environmental and social solidarity.

Great care will be put into our Green philosophy that will be applied to the catering services as well as to the choice of all equipment, materials, and gadgets.

  • Food waste: Thanks to the collaboration with Federcongressi & eventi, the food bank network Banco Alimentare and the Fair Event organization Equoevento, we will collect the surplus food at the end of the Conference meals and deliver it to charitable organizations such as family homes, soup kitchens and refugee centres, in accordance with applicable hygiene regulations and in compliance with Italy‚Äôs Good Samaritan law (Law 155/2003).

  • Carbon neutral: Our conferences are climate-friendly and, in the best-case scenario, carbon neutral. As the Organazing Secretariat, Symposia minimises the waste of CO2 emissions during its work and avoid all CO2 emissions that arise from any conference-related activities and travels. For this reason, in the website and private correspondence with participants, our staff will inform participants of different possibilities to reach the venue, such as public transportation and bike routes. We also prioritize renewable energy sources and eco-friendly merchandise in the conference kit.
  • Social sustainability: We encourage socially sustainable conferences, designed, planned and realized with a strategy that minimizes negative impact on the environment and leaves a positive legacy to the host community.
