On 12-13 July 2010, in Yokohama, Japan, the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) organised the second International Forum for Sustainable Asia and the Pacific (ISAP2010). A total of about 780 people participated for this two-day event.

Under the main theme of "low-carbon development in Asia and the Pacific," ISAP 2010 focused on Climate Change and Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) as well as other important issues in the region.

The Third IGES White Paper was also launched at this forum. Entitled "Sustainable Consumption and Production in the Asia-Pacific Region: Effective responses in a resource constrained world" with unique insights and proposals on SCP.

ISAP2010: Actions for a Sustainable Forum

In an effort to make the ISAP a carbon neutral event, we are promoting the following actions and encourage participants to take action too:

Public Transportation
As the organiser, IGES encourages ISAP participants to use public transportation as much as possible to have less impact on the environment. The forum venue is walking distance (about 10 mins.) from the train station (Minatomirai Station of Minatomirai Line).

Carbon Offset Flight
IGES recommends that speakers and panelists at ISAP choose airlines providing a carbon offset option for their travel.

The meeting rooms will be kept at 28 degrees Celsius during the forum to promote “CoolBiz” --- It is suggested that dress-code should be semi-formal, and men should not be required to wear a necktie.

Sustainable Papers
All the paper used for ISAP is FSC paper or recycled paper to support sustainable forest management.

Less Documentation
To minimise paper consumption during the forum, IGES will make every effort to share the presentation materials by uploading them onto the Internet, as opposed to the distribution of documents in hard copy.

Waste Management
The ISAP venue (Pacifico Yokohama) pursues 100% recycling of waste produced in the building. It requests that all participants should separate any garbage so that it can be appropriately treated according to the local waste management system. The following types of waste bins are set at the venues.
- Bottles, cans, and “Pet” plastic bottles for recycling
- Raw garbage (e.g. leftover food, etc.) and dirty paper (e.g. paper cups)
- Dirty plastic
- Clean plastic (e.g. wrap film)
- Newspapers, magazines and brochures
- Others

Energy Conservation
The ISAP venue is an energy-saving building, using LED lights in most parts of the building and the lights operated by sensor in washrooms, escalators and stairs.
