Following the events in Dubai and St. Moritz, One Night Only Venezia 2023 was also designed to minimise the environmental impact in accordance with ISO 20121.
All residual greenhouse gas emissions linked to the event were offset by supporting environmental projects, managed by ‘Sea the Change’ and ‘Società Agricola Blue Valley’, that aim to preserve the ecological equilibrium of the Venetian Lagoon and to restore its ecosystem and biodiversity.
The group offset all remaining greenhouse gas emissions connected to the One Night Only Dubai 2021 event through two REDD+ projects (Reduction of Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) to support nature.
These projects, which target the Amazon rainforest, collectively reduce CO2 by over 500,000 tonnes per year, contribute to the conservation of biodiversity and the global fight against climate change, and offer social and economic benefits, in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
