Green Events - Planet Friendly, People Friendly Events
At The Conference People we have high expectations for environmental management and human rights in the workplace. In essence this means treating people fairly and preserving the environment. As a responsible company, our duties extend globally towards people, the environment and society. This is how we aim to build a sustainable company and, just as importantly, manage sustainable events. We ask our clients and suppliers to join us in the efforts.
We are working closely on these issues and our aim is to raise awareness of these responsibilities. Here are a few examples of how your next event could be a success for your business, the environment and of course, your people.
What is a Green Event?
Broad guidelines for a greener event are that it should be organised electronically, minimise carbon emissions for travelling delegates and speakers, save energy, practice recycling, and adopt environmentally-thoughtful measures wherever practical and possible.
Our online Delegate Management System provides a total paperless, planet friendly system. Delegates register online and receive all communication from our office electronically, including maps, directions and final joining instructions. For those delegates unable to access a PC we can offer a registration using recycled paper.
Choose hotels and other venues where environmental responsibility is top-down policy. Our constantly updated database of venues contains over 36,000 suitable venues worldwide and, whilst our search remains independent, we are aware of the greenest venues so we can match the right venue for your meeting.
You could even stage an event in a venue which implicitly expresses your identification with green concerns.
One example might be Kew Gardens because of its work for the conservation and preservation of plants; another might be the Sheepdrove Eco Conference Centre, a completely sustainable, eco friendly conference facility. There are very few totally sustainable venues in the UK, so our expertise comes in finding you companies and venues that are doing everything they can to minimise their impact on the environment, and help you to run your event in a planet friendly manner, whilst maintaining the high levels of style and professionalism required.
