The GSMA is proud that it has achieved carbon neutrality for all activity in 2016, with independent auditors British Standards Institute certifying all GSMA events and worldwide offices as carbon neutral. This includes Mobile World Congress Barcelona, Mobile World Congress Shanghai and the seven international events of the Mobile 360 series, as well as 12 GSMA office locations around the world. The GSMA’s carbon footprint has been compensated with UN certified carbon credits supporting sustainable development projects around the globe. The GSMA will continue to pursue carbon neutrality of its events and facilities on an annual basis.
In addition to receiving carbon neutral certification from BSI, Mobile World Congress has been confirmed by Guinness World Records as the largest carbon neutral trade show in the world for 2016 and 2015.
