The solar powered stage (no generators), close proximity to the competition site, and local tree planting initiative helped reduce the event’s emissions significantly. As for unavoidable emissions resulting from grid power used at the High Performance Center, non-composted food waste, jet ski fuel used to keep athletes safe in the water, as well as athlete and staff travel, the Eurosurf Adaptives partnered with the Plantar uma Árvore organization to become a carbon neutral event. The tree planting restoration project is in a wildfire-stricken area only 1.5 hours away from the event in the Serra do Alvão region (https://plantarumaarvore.org/).
