Carbon Offset Fees

In keeping with FCM’s efforts to reduce the environmental impact of its events, all registrations automatically include an optional carbon offset fee to offset greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from air travel to the conference. The fee is calculated based on a return flight from the most populous city in your province to the conference location – Halifax. 100% of this fee will be paid to Carbonzero and invested in a Canadian project that permanently retires GHG emissions. The fee is optional and if you wish to opt out from participating, simply select “Remove from Cart” next to the carbon offset fee in your shopping cart when confirming registration.

Shopping Cart

Items in your shopping cart will be available for 48-hours only.  After that period, all items will be released.
