Automotive Dealer Day is Carbon Neutral

After the 2023 experience, also in 2024 Automotive Dealer Day will be a sustainable and carbon neutral event.
At a time when the negative impacts of climate change on natural ecosystems are increasingly evident and critical, Quintegia has decided to embark on a path of sustainability in line with the development goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda (SDGs).
To make Automotive Dealer Day sustainable, Quintegia is therefore committed to choose, wherever possible, low-impact and circular solutions, defining good practices to be followed by all suppliers, exhibitors and business partners, and calculating the event’s carbon footprint.
Quintegia will also offset the CO2 emissions produced during the event through the purchase of certified carbon credits, in order to achieve the ambitious goal of organizing a carbon neutral event.

The offset of the event

To make the 2023 edition of Automotive Dealer Day sustainable, Quintegia has therefore committed to offset 581 tons of CO2 eq through the sale and retirement of a batch of VCS (Verified Carbon Standard) and/or CCB (Climate Community & Biodiversity) certified carbon credits issued by the leading international VERRA Standard and subject to audit by an independent third party.
The credits relate to two projects:

Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve REDD+

the first REDD+ project audited under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS). One of the largest REDD+ projects with 47,000 hectares of Indonesian native forest. Largest privately funded orangutan sanctuary in the world. First REDD+ project in the world to be audited for SDG compliance according to the SD Vista Standard – achieving the highest possible rating of contribution to all 17 UN SDGs.

Kumkoy Hydroelectic Power Plant

the project was established in the Black Sea region of Turkey with the aim of generating clean electricity using energy from the Yeşilırmak River to replace electricity generated from fossil fuels.
Automotive Dealer Day has chosen to support the activities of Save the Children, the International Organization that has been fighting for over 100 years to save the children at risk and ensure them a future, by joining the Enterprise for Children Program through a donation, aimed at promoting and protecting the rights of minors in Italy and in every part of the world, according to the UN Convention on the Rights of Childhood.

Guidelines for organizing a sustainable event



Reduce the production of materials, limiting it to those strictly necessary and in any case favoring digital solutions.

Optimize logistics by reducing the number of vehicles involved and favoring transport solutions with a low environmental impact.

Implement correct health, safety and hygiene practices to protect everyone involved. Ensure accessibility to all event spaces.



Choose materials that are reusable, easy to disassemble and reassemble several times, easily transportable, recycled and recyclable, environmentally friendly and/or certified.

Use recycled packaging, avoiding plastic and single-use, favoring reuse.

Favor energy-efficient and low-consumption technological tools and appliances.

Raise stakeholder awareness in following good sustainability practices and reducing waste.



Quantify the CO2 emitted for the organization and realization of the event, including supplier logistics and participants travels.

Offset the CO2 thus quantified through the purchase of equal carbon credits generated by certified projects, contributing economically to the realization of one or more environmental protection and social development initiatives.
