The New Normal Report

The New Normal: Establishing the UK as a global leader in event sustainability’ is the first in a series of Positive Impact reports.

In December 2014, Positive Impact Events and Nick de Bois MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group, convened a group of event and sustainability experts from a range of organisations including Anglian Water, Barclays Bank, Leeds Beckett University, the Greater London Authority and IMG. 

Current global sustainable event standards like ISO 20121 aim to ensure the social, environmental and economic impacts of events are as positive as possible. But in the UK, these standards are not yet the ‘new normal.’ This report provides recommendations to Government and the event industry to work together to position the UK as a leader on sustainable events practice.
