Event Management – Creating a Sustainable Event

Whenever we gather together – whether it is for a reception, a festival, a meeting or a convention – waste is inevitably created. However, we have the opportunity to make a positive difference for the environment by choosing compostable or reusable packaging and diverting waste from landfill to create a sustainable event.

Event planners are the central figures in any event, affecting the choices and experiences of a constellation of suppliers, facilities, caterers, sponsors and attendees. Our sustainable event plans are designed to lessen the negative impact of your event on the environment. Making a positive contribution to the community and the planet.

Each event is different and we have a wide variety of add-ons to make your event more sustainable, such as sorting crews and baling stations.

What we can do

To create your sustainable event firstly we will assess your site and packaging requirements with a free audit. We provide clearly signed bins and a bin station map to ensure maximum exposure. This helps keep your event clean and with minimal waste contamination.

Secondly, we provide free staff on-boarding workshops to help educate and promote your zero waste initiatives to the event staff. We can also pair cleaning services to make your waste and cleaning management simple and effective. When staff and cleaners are aware and educated on the waste management system we create an optimum environment for clean waste diversion.

At the conclusion of the event we can provide a report covering the waste statistics of the event. For example the percentage of waste diverted from landfill into recycling or compost. Plus, a understandable statistics such as how much compost we produced and energy saved.

We recently completed events such as Ice Cream Factory Summer Festival, Northbridge Beerfest, Laneway, and Bonjour Festival.
