Sustainable Events and Greening Your Event

A truly sustainable event is one in which carbon emissions are calculated and sustainability advisors are available to help. More information is available through the Ministry for the Environment which produced a Major Event Greening Guide and Greener Events Guide.

Regardless of how far you decide to go, you should still recycle and reduce your water use and promote a greener event with your team.

Here are some focus areas;

  • Energy
  • Water (amusement operators using water should arrange their own source)
  • Landfill Waste (how can you reduce this?)
  • Recycling & Composting (there are professionals that can arrange this)
  • Transport
  • Materials & Publications
  • Suppliers & Catering
  • Environmental Attitudes (have you promoted greening your event with your team?)
