We support events and marketing professionals to run more sustainable events, providing practical guidance through training, workshops, audits and bespoke advice. Our standard training course consists of 6 modules, each designed to cover a stage in the process of designing and delivering events with reduced environmental impact and that contribute to positive social change. Ideally, these are delivered as a series of  half day workshops, however, each module can be standalone and the course can be condensed to 1 day if necessary.


The goal is to convey sustainability best practice for the events team and supporting departments to deliver well considered, sustainable events and merchandise. We also aim to build knowledge around ISO 20121 certification and the UN SDGs, as well as other frameworks that will drive sustainable innovation and implementation.


Note that we aim to be flexible. Ultimately, your sustainability strategy and operational plan should be aligned with your specific organisational objectives and our approach and training content can be fine-tuned to achieve this.


As you position your brand to be more conscientious, it’s essential that your events follow suit. 


Completing the course will result in a bigger picture perspective on the importance of sustainability in improving trust and engagement between event teams, investors, clients, customers and other stakeholders.
