    Abstract Travel GHG emissions seem to be a main challenge to tackle when organising small-size international academic conferences at which amounts of food and energy consumed are not that large. Offsetting mechanisms may not be the most appropriate tool for reducing travel emissions. Instead, other measures such as combining the attendance of several events in one long-distance trip seem to be a more promising option. A more systematic approach to obtaining emissions data on the event's food and energy consumption may assist in selecting more climate-friendly accommodations and event venues to try to keep the event's emissions low.
