Sibos jetsetters go carbon neutral

Payments professionals jetting off to the Sibos international banking show in Austria next week can offset some of their planet-warming carbon emmissions by taking part in a simple online survey on Finextra - and get a chance to win a top-of-the-range mountain bike to boot.

The green e-invoicing quiz is part of Finextra's SibosOnline Green Zone - an online destination for all green, sustainable and environmental issues at Sibos. For each quiz taken, we will offset one tonne of carbon - equating to one return flight from New York to London - through our association with The Carbon Neutral Company. So you can kiss the kids goodbye and hop on that plane to Sibos with a clear conscience.

Sibos-goers can also head over directly to the Fundtech stand C209, where they can fill out the details in person. Just watch out for the SibosOnline Green Zone Member Logo accreditation.

As a further incentive, all participants will be entered into a prize draw to win a Kona Caldera mountain bike.

You too can be an eco-warrior
