Healthy environment for healthy kidneys


Take action for the planet at ERA24

The ERA Congress promotes sustainable development and global responsibility in different ways: the aim is to encourage environmentally friendly behaviours and to raise awareness on the importance of a healthy environment for healthy kidneys.

  1. Choose sustainable transportation: Prefer low-emission travel and public transportation: take advantage of the special offer by Arlanda Express and get 20% discount. Trains are fast, comfortable and ecological! More details here.
  2. Go digital and reduce paper usage: Access congress materials and schedules through our official Congress app and Virtual Congress to reduce paper waste.
  3. Bring your reusable items: Remember to bring your own reusable water bottle and coffee cup to refill at our water stations and coffee breaks.
  4. Recycle your lanyard: You can reuse it next year or return it at the Registration area at the end of the Congress.
  5. Reduce your carbon footprint: Reduce your flights carbon footprint thanks to the Fly Green Fund: use the carbon emissions calculator and make a donation to support the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
  6. Energy conservation: Turn off computers, laptops and other electronic devices when not in use. Recharge them only when needed.
  7. Waste reduction: Dispose of waste responsibly by using designated recycling and compost bins provided throughout the venue.
  8. Engage in sustainable catering:  Enjoy locally sourced food and vegetarian options provided by our caterers and avoid single-use plastics.
  9. Learn and share: Discover the ePlanet project at the ERA Booth to learn more about how healthcare professionals can make a positive impact
  10. Provide feedback: Share your thoughts and suggestions on how we can improve our sustainability efforts for future congresses


Social responsibility

  • The ERA Congress supports multidisciplinary encounters and diversity perspectives (e.g. prayer room, nursery).
  • Several price categories are offered to make the Congress accessible even for participants from low-income countries and to enhance the participation of students and young nephrologists.
  • The ERA Congress strongly promotes gender balance.
  • ERA takes measures to ensure health safety (hygiene, thorough cleaning of facilities, medical support team) and people security (security staff).
