Low Carbon Live Events are a Growing Trend-Part 1

low carbon live events

Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword, real people are making real changes whether through the plastic pledge campaign, refusing plastic straws or sailing around the world.  More and more people are becoming increasingly concerned with leaving a carbon footprint, although most of your attendees are coming for your event and what you have to offer, you can still plan low carbon live events that are spectacular. 

Corporate event planners have an opportunity to support sustainability efforts by promoting awareness and even changing how people think and act.

There are some things that you can do as a corporate event planning manager to take responsibility for producing an eco-friendly event. For example, the 2012 Olympic Games in London were built with sustainability sourced materials for the first time in the game’s history.  This was an opportunity to educate the audience and prevent a significant amount of waste. 

Here are some tips that corporate event planners can follow to support eco-friendly, sustainable event planning:

  • Develop a custom event app, rather than printed material
  • Offer refill stations for water bottles
  • Do not provide plastic water bottles or plastic straws at vendor stations
  • Provide recyclable straws instead
  • Educate your audience on not using plastic
  • Provide recycling activities at your event
  • Offer farm to table food options
  • Provide environmental education at recycling centers and throughout the event

Producing environmentally friendly events is important to support a popular cause many of your attendees believe in, but most importantly to contribute to mindfulness and environmental awareness.  Work with an event production company you can clearly communicate with to express your needs and desire for less waste and eco-friendly practices.
