#dotJSCTF

Becoming carbon neutral

At dotJS, we announced that from now on all our events will be carbon neutral!

It means that we will do everything we can to lower our footprint on the environment and we'll buy carbon offsets to compensate what's left (mostly attendee travel).

We want to make everyone feel great about coming to dotConferences, and hopefully inspire others to do the same!
