What practical evidence should I see to know my event is sustainable?
This month, we spoke to Goodwood, Bristlecone Strategies, MPI Belgium and A Greener Festival about our theme 'what practical evidence should I see to know my event is sustainable?' According to the UN, events "can leave a significant environmental footprint – through consuming energy and water, generating waste, polluting the air and water, and contributing to climate change by creating greenhouse gas emissions." Although we all know this to be the case, the events industry also has an immense power to enforce change through our efficient and effective ways of sharing ideas, identifying solutions and reaching agreements. Our interviews and blogs this month address these issues and provide effective tools to help tackle them.
