Sustainable events; things to consider during the planning process

Updated: May 13

Creating sustainable events involves considering environmental, social and economic impacts. Here are some steps to make your events sustainable during planning:


1)    Venue selection: consider venues that prioritise sustainability, such as LEED-certified buildings (leadership in energy and environmental design) or location with access to public transport.

2)    Waste management: Implement waste reduction strategies like composting, recycling, and minimising single-use plastics. Provide clearly marked bins for attendees.

3)    Green catering: opt for local, organic, and seasonal food options. Minimise food waste by providing for specific attendee numbers and donating any left others to food banks.

4)    Transportation: Encourage attendees to use sustainable transportation options like carpooling or public transport. Consider incentives for eco-friendly travelling.

5)    Energy efficiency: Use energy-efficient lighting, equipment, and technology, or use suppliers that do. Also look into the options of renewable energy sources or offsets for power consumption.

6)     Digital promotion: minimise paper usage by promoting the event digitally and providing online registration and materials. Utilise electronic signage instead of printed banners. If you are working to a tight budget consider reusable signage where possible.

7)    Materials: consider eco-friendly materials for always such as recycled glass or wooden products.


By incorporating these practices into your event planning process, you can reduce environmental impact and promote sustainable practices within your organisation and community.
