Get a Great Hotel Deal,
Erase Your Carbon Footprint For Free

At ASES we partner with TripZero to provide discounted group hotel deals and erase the carbon footprint created by travel to SOLAR 2024.

The average attendee will create almost one tonne of CO2 in transit. We'll erase all of it with Certified Carbon Offsets.

Here's How It Works

Your booking enables us to erase your travel footprint through the purchase of Certified Carbon Offsets (at no cost to you).

These offset purchases finance amazing renewable energy, methane reduction and forestry projects that remove CO2 from the atmosphere. In turn, they render your trip carbon-neutral and benefit local communities.
