How we can help you
If you have a team of highly skilled events professionals and you want the whole sustainability approach to be truly embedded, we can be a sounding board and guide. We often work with Event Production Managers who are building in the approach to sustainability management, and help fill the knowledge gap. This is a terrific short-cut, preventing busy events professionals from having to do the heavy lifting. But being lead by your team, the final result is speaking your language and integrated into your systems.
You may have the staff resources and skills to do the doing, but not sure on the strategic approach.
We can run sessions with your team to develop a strategic approach to sustainability, and understanding what sustainability means to you and your stakeholders.
This could include working out what's your 'real' purpose when it comes to doing good in the world. Or it might be a more systematic approach, where we define the way you'll categorise and identify the various sustainability topics and themes. We can help you to align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
We'll work with you to implement your sustainability strategy, creating your framework, systems and action planning. We would run a gap analysis to start the planning process. We'll create project management plans, operational procedures, checklists for easy implementation, communications plans, and setting objectives/KPIs/targets and measurement systems. We'll build competency in your team, teaching them how to integrate sustainable practices into their planning and delivery. We can talk with sponsors, communications, venues, contractors, suppliers. We can even be there on event day to run programme elements (like vendor liaison, managing the waste contractor, taking measurements) or just to ensure all the sustainability-related plans are running smoothly.
Using your platform for good is the end game in event sustainability. The rest is housekeeping! We will work with you to bring to life what matters to you and your stakeholders, through your event. This, importantly means the event is reflecting community values, and enhancing your social license to operate. Now more than ever, every event must have an authentic purpose built in.
We help develop the event's performance measurement system, which allows you to confidently report your impact to stakeholders. This includes developing the framework or running the data collection and analysis. We provide sustainability reporting, including interpretation of results and ongoing improvement opportunities.
We are able to support your GRI Reporting approach also.
Proving you've met best practice standards is essential in sustainability. We can help identify the relevant certifications or reporting protocols that your event should meet. This could include GHG reporting, event sustainability management systems (ISO 20121), GRI, or local eco-label certifications.
And of course, if you simply want to skill up your team, we have self-paced online training with our other project the Institute of Sustainable Events. Or we can tailor workshops and in-house training for your staff, or even your vendors, partners, sponsors and host cities.
