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!

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:
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:
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:
Use this carbon offsetting tool produced by our very own Swiss B Corp, NOW, in partnership with SouthPole:
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:
