ACM SIGCSE makes it is easy for participants to offset their carbon footprint to the ACM SIGCSE Technical Symposium through the registration process. Donations will be passed directly to Cool Effect, an organization that helps individuals and businesses develop practical and cost-effective solutions to slow, stop, and reduce the climate crisis. During the registration process, you will see a check box option that will allow you to make a donation to offset your emissions from attending the symposium. This contribution is optional and distinct from the registration fee and will appear as such on your registration receipt. Please consult your organization in advance to determine if the expense is reimbursable. If you need to use different credit cards for your registration and your donation, you can simply log in again after registering, update your registration, and pay with a second credit card. ACM will forward the names of the individuals that contribute along with the amount of their contribution to Cool Effect who will acknowledge the contribution to the individual donor for tax purposes. You can utilize the carbon offset calculator to make the appropriate donation based on travel and lodging.
