Research shows that travelling by train causes just 2% of the CO2 equivalent emissions which would be produced by an equivalent short-distance flight while an equivalent bus ride results in 7%.
In 2019 travels to and from the STS Conference Graz produced approximately 123t of CO2 equivalent emissions, 96% of which were caused by flights. In an effort to reduce the carbon impact of our conference, we invite you to consider traveling by train or bus.
There are several options to travel to Graz via train or bus from all over Europe. To exemplify, we looked up a several connections (see below). Most of those are night-trains which comfortably get to to Vienna overnight. So you would only have to change once to get from Vienna to Graz the next morning.
