More than just “going green”

Years of intense effort often go into making an event happen. But once everyone has packed up and gone home, there’s still work to be done. The uncomfortable truth is that events are extremely wasteful. Materials that could be recycled, or even reused, end up being disposed of or destroyed – often at considerable cost to the environment, the local community and the bottom line.

The time has come to take a stand and put an end to unnecessary waste. That’s why we’re working hard to create a legacy of sustainability for the entire events industry. That means not just evolving our own processes, practices and materials, but educating others too.
