INTA’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Initiatives in Orlando



Carbon Credit Donation

Participate in the Carbon Credit initiative. Make a $10 donation during the online registration process to offset your carbon travel emissions and help “green” the meeting.

INTA has partnered with Carbonfund.org to help highlight the importance of offsetting the Annual Meeting’s carbon footprint. All of the proceeds will be donated to Carbonfund.org.

Carbonfund.org is leading the fight against global warming, making it easy and affordable for individuals, businesses or organizations to reduce and offset their climate impact and hasten the transition to a clean energy future.
