At ESPID, we think everyone can play a role in maintaining a sustainable future. This year, we are focused on improving the Meeting’s waste management. Every small action matters!

Here is what we encourage you to do before and during the ESPID Meeting:

  • Use the mobile app and the virtual platform (instead of printing) to inquire about the programme details
  • Use more sustainable ways of traveling to and around Lisbon (consider the train and carbon offsetting; bus, tram, ride a bike or walk instead of using a taxi in Lisbon)
  • Reduce the waste you generate and separate recyclables
  • Opt for reusable mugs and bottles
  • Consider alternative business cards like QR codes or e-cards
  • Join us in the exhibition area on Wednesday, 10 May at 12:55-13:30 for a SPECIAL NEW SESSION: “Towards zero waste: active participation” by Ana Salcedo.

Go Green with ESPID and support SOS Children’s Villages: Make a donation to receive your reusable ESPID mug or ESPID bottle at the ESPID Booth (#17 in Exhibition Area).

For additional information:


Within the Meeting venue, healthcare professional authorized to prescribe prescription medicines will be recognized with a letter P (Prescriber) indicated on their name badges. Non-prescribers will be indicated as N/P.
