Free Tool Offers Best Practices For Decarbonization For Events
The Net Zero Carbon Events initiative has published "Best Practices for Decarbonization Pathways" to provide actionable insights and strategies that can be implemented immediately by event organizers, venues, exhibitors and suppliers. The document is available free to download here.
The interim document provides best practices for venue energy, smart production and waste management, food and food waste, logistics and travel and accommodation. The document highlights actions to help event organizations gain a head start on their decarbonization journey. Full guidance documents are set for release in December 2023.
“Recognizing the urgency of addressing carbon emissions as we move along within our project, we have compiled this preliminary resource,” said James Rees, president of the Joint Meetings Industry Council, which is driving the initiative for the industry. “The path to achieving net zero carbon events is a collective endeavor, and we deeply appreciate everyone’s ongoing support and contributions to this crucial initiative.”
After the launch of the Net Zero Carbon Events Pledge at Cop26, the Net Zero Carbon Event Roadmap was published at Cop27 in November 2022. It’s available as a Full Report with comprehensive information on how to implement action to achieve Net Zero and as an Executive Summary.
More than 30 major meetings and events industry organizations from across the world are financial contributors to Net Zero Carbon Events, which is open to all organizations involved in events. Registration is free of charge.
