The ISTH takes pride in implementing sustainable practices to ensure proper stewardship of limited resources. View a few of the sustainability initiatives below:

Box Lunches

All box lunches served as part of the ISTH Congress will include biodegradble utensils and packaging. Additionally, the water bottles provided are made with 30% biopet, a plastic with vegetable origin. 

Any unused and unopened lunches will be donated to a local food bank, Siticibo Banco Alimentare, where it will be served to people in need.

Printed Programs
All ISTH 2020 program information is available online and through the ISTH 2020 app. Consider foregoing the use of a printed program to cut down on waste. Printed programs are still available, but only by request during registration.
