Busan works towards being carbon neutral by 2050

One of the activities that BTO has organised

The city of Busan in South Korea has adopted a climate change response plan to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

The plan covers seven sectors, including industry and waste, and includes 104 specific implementation tasks. The primary objective is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 47 per cent from 2018 to 2030 and to ultimately achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

To raise awareness among business events stakeholders and the general public, Busan has also launched a carbon neutrality policy website called Net Zero Busan, as well as an app that provides tourism information for delegates, while raising awareness about urban ecology and the importance of carbon neutrality through eco-friendly experiences,

In support of this push towards carbon neutrality, the Busan Tourism Organization also organises a range of eco-friendly campaigns.

Last summer, BTO organised an eco-friendly plogging (jogging while picking up litter) social contribution campaign, during which approximately 50 BTO staff members and residents carried out environmental activities in the Haeundae Beach area. After plogging, participants made social contributions by donating snacks and diapers to a temporary shelter for children and a welfare foundation. Earlier in November, the BTO made upcycled dolls using marine waste resources and donated the finished toys to a social welfare centre.
