WE’D LOVE TO SEE YOU AT THE B CORP SUMMIT THIS YEAR, BUT WE’D ALSO LOVE TO MAKE SURE WE DO AS LITTLE HARM TO THE PLANET AS POSSIBLE THROUGH OUR JOURNEYS GETTING THERE!

 
As such, and where possible, we'd like to encourage you to seek alternative modes of travel that don't rely on a plane. Yes, it may take a little longer but it could do significantly less damage.

Here are some thoughts to consider...

TRAIN

The best option (other than bicycle, for those of you already in Amsterdam!), is to travel by train..

Eurostar now have a new route direct from London to Amsterdam:

 

The Thalys rail network connects Amsterdam with Paris, Brussels, Antwerp and Rotterdam:

 

Trainline have times and tickets for trains to Amsterdam from right across Europe:

CAR

Again, driving isn't great for the planet, but its significantly better than flying! If you can drive, do consider halving your carbon footprint by sharing the journey with a fellow Summit attendee.

Or use one of the more popular car pooling apps to find someone heading the same way that you could share your car with:

 
And if you need to hire a car, please consider using this fantastic B Corp to do so! Snappcar offer car hire and car sharing options from local people within Holland, or from Germany, Denmark or Sweden:

 

CARBON OFFSETTING

No alternative but to fly? Consider off-setting the carbon your journey has used by using one of these offsetting websites to give something back to the planet:

KLM have a program called CO2Zero. It works by adding a fee to your flight at point of booking. Other airlines will offer something similar so do check before you book:

 

The Gold Standard is a website that allows you to choose the kind of project you donate to, to offset your carbon emission:

TRAVEL & ACCOMODATION

The 2019 B Corp Summit will take place in the heart of Amsterdam. If you are traveling by air, the closest airport to Amsterdam is Schiphol airport. Public transport to the city is easily accessible from the airport. Please note that if you take a taxi in, please check with the driver prior to driving regarding estimated pricing into the city.

If you need accommodation - we suggest you book on hotel booking platform Goodwings. Goodwings is B Corp Certified and supports B Lab with donations on every booking.
