How sustainable is the Sustainability Live exhibition?
As the sustainable industries event we are conscious of the fact we need to be leading the way and doing the best we can to make our event as sustainable as possible.
With this in mind, for 2013 we have implemented a variety of initiatives to help Sustainability Live work towards becoming a more sustainable event.
Faversham House is committed to minimising the impact of its events on the environment. We accept responsibility for the environmental effects of our events, both locally and globally, and we are committed to reducing those effects through the entire life cycle of each event.
The key points of our strategy to achieve this are:
- Measure the impact of each event on the environment, and set sustainability targets for continuous improvement
- Ensure we comply with all relevant legislation - environmental and otherwise
- Implement a training program for our staff to raise awareness of environmental issues, and ensure their support for our sustainability policy
- Encourage our suppliers to adopt a similar policy, and make sustainability a factor in selecting suppliers
Green Print Procedure
We are carbon offsetting the emissions of SustainabilityLive 2013 with our Offset Partner Carbon Footprint Ltd.
This activity will be supporting Clean Energy technologies across the World and the Carbon Offsets for these high quality VCS projects. These offsets are also approved under the Quality Assurance Standard (QAS), which imposes a rigorous 40 point check-list on our partner, Carbon Footprint Ltd.
Online Exhibitor Manual
The marketing and operations department have worked together to provide exhibitors with an online manual system which allows visitors to organise their presence at the event entirely online. This prevents printing large quantities of paper and makes the process much more efficient.
Visitor Car Sharing
We try to encourage all visitors attending Sustainability Live to travel by public transport, although where this is not possible we have organised a car sharing service. This enables visitors to liase with other attendees to arrange travelling together, this helps to keep environmental impact down and helps visitors share the cost of travelling to the event.
If you have any feedback or ideas on how we can become more sustainable, or if you would like more information about any of the initiatives we already have in place please contact email@example.com.
