The Gender Park achieved its mission of carbon-neutrality at ICGE II by taking on board Vydyuthi Energy Services (VES), a Kerala-based energy and carbon consulting startup recognized by UN-WEP, who provided an overall framework for validating and preparing the calculations, and documentation of the entire event’s direct and indirect emission sources (Scope 1, Scope 2, Scope 3).
