As clients booking events increasingly demand sustainability credentials, venues that have invested in green and corporate social responsibility strategies will become ever more competitive and stand out from the rest.
Green and sustainable venues don’t necessarily have to have certification such as ISO 20121 hanging on their walls (although it’s even more beneficial if they do). They just need to be able to show that they’ve embarked on the sustainability journey and they’re implementing steps that will allow event planners to measure the impact of their events and reduce the amount of waste, carbon emissions, energy or other factors that will mutually benefit the planet.
Some of the initiatives that venues across the UK have implemented include recycled bottled water, worm farms to aid composting and the reduction of carbon emissions.
Some venues focus on how delegates will travel to their events whilst others will assist the organiser in producing reports that show delegates the reduced impact of the meeting or event.
