When it comes to the environment and natural resources, we regularly take out more than what we give back. Yet we rely on these natural resources for the highlights of our travel experience.
These natural and environmental impacts are climate polluting greenhouse gases, like carbon dixide, methane and nitrous oxide, but also ecosystem pollution to water and land from sewage, plastics and farming for food.
GABI measures the impact harm to the climate and biodiversity and then calculates the financial cost to the environmental. This financial cost is the amount that should be provided as a 'Return to Nature' and 'Investment Value' to fund improvements, promote change and regenerate the environment. We have found that both the venue and the guests appreciate the information and the ability to make a difference by giving a bit back.
The harm costs form the "environmental impact charge" per guest, or per group cover of a particular event.
This charge is called the "
", a discretionary element to enable businesses to give back to the environment and for localities to improve their overall sustainability.

//water usage per square meter per hour for MICE is 1.3meters cubed (times two m2 = 2.6m3)- kgCO2 per meter cubed of water is 0.344 (UK) = (2.6*0.344)= 0.8944. It takes 0.708 KgCO2 to treat 1 m3 of water = (2.6*0.708)=1.8408). ///>

FOOD & BEVERAGE
Food and beverage are a part of the emissions for holidays and events. We have based our impacts analysis of food emissions on international academic sources.
You may wonder why we have focused on a small number of foods and have not included food travel miles. We have selected the highest environmentally impacting foods and beverages because we are trying to encourage choices that are less impactful to nature.
The food travel distance has not been requested because, based on
, it is what you eat rather than its journey to you, that has the most climate and biodiversity impact.

Biodiversity Harm Impact Costs
The biodiversity harm cost of a product is often higher than the CO2 harm cost.
For instance, a single 330ml plastic bottle
impacts the marine environment
at $0.20(US) a bottle, while that same bottle is only $0.0002 in CO2 impact.
