IPU meeting will be carbon neutral

Some 700 parliamentarians from around the globe are flying into Dhaka to participate in the Inter Parliamentary Union (IPU) meeting and that would mean a lot of carbon footprint. But organisers have vowed to make annual assembly a carbon neutral one.

Saber Hossain Chowdhury, president of IPU, told journalists today that they will calculate the total carbon footprint once all the guests arrive and then they will devise a way to neutralise it.

He also said that they would calculate the carbon footprint either on April 4 or 5 during the conference.

However, he did not specify how the carbon footprint will be neutralised.

Saber was briefing the journalists on the arrangement of the entire programme at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC).
