MWC Shanghai: Largest Carbon Neutral Exhibition and Conference in Asia

MWC Shanghai has been officially certified by AENOR International as carbon neutral under the international PAS 2060 standard, reinforcing its position as the largest carbon neutral exhibition and conference in Asia. The GSMA implemented a range of measures to reduce emissions for MWC19 Shanghai, resulting in a greenhouse gas reduction of more than 90 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent. To compensate for the remaining carbon footprint, the GSMA is supporting the United Nations-certified projects, including an N2O decomposition project in Liaoyang, a Hydropower project in Aketao, China and a Hydro-electric project in Cambodia. In 2020, the GSMA will continue to focus on reducing environmental
