One of our industry associations, Eventia, has developed an online guide to sustainable event standard BS8901. The Conference People are one of Europe’s leading companies in the promotion of sustainable events, and this positive step is music to our ears.
The simple guide forms part of the CSR section of the Eventia website and was created with input from hoteliers, agencies and venues.
The move follows workshop sessions involving Eventia members and BSI British Standards, during which implementation of key steps were reviewed and feedback provided.
"Through discussion with members it became clear there was a need for clarification of the actions the industry should be taking," said Eventia board member for CSR, Aileen Reuter.
The Conference People will soon be embarking on our journey to achieving this standard, which is integral in our continuing "Green Thinking" campaign to make events, and the industry as a whole, greener and sustainable.
