18 Aug proseed: event sustainability framework
the events industry has a duty to be at the forefront of sustainability and our job as a leading event management agency is to ensure that we provide the best quality of events that leave as little negative impact on the earth’s environment as possible.
this week we have seen the introduction of the events industries first framework for delivering sustainable events created by the event sustainability group isla. proseed is the name of the framework and it aims to offer information and guidance to the events industry on how to run sustainable event practices by implementing its framework. the process is going to be tested with isla’s member base and developed through the coming year.
proceed aims to empower event managers to create positive impacts by simplifying the complex area of sustainability. the core focus of the framework will be around 3 areas.
- clear: explaining issues, the importance of these issues and how to address them (food waste / energy etc)
- action focused: simple to follow lists so event managers can be accountable for the beginning
- practical: use of sustainability policies and action plans
