Short summary
In this study, the GHG emissions from travel activities of attendees of the EGEA annual conference 2013 have been calculated in a GIS-based analysis. The travel activities of the participants result in total GHG emissions of 39,300 kg CO2-eq including both outward and return trip. On average a participant caused GHG emissions of 401 kg CO2-eq. The potential to reduce GHG emissions by substituting flights (-32.6%) and choosing a more central site (-26.3%) has also been assessed.
