With that in mind, minimising your environmental impact is now a critical component of your business strategy. With corporate social responsibility under increasing scrutiny, every aspect of your operations – including events, meetings, and team training days – must align with sustainable practices.

It’s a must-have, rather than a nice-to-have. So, if you’re planning a corporate event, here’s a few eco-friendly event ideas and top tips, straight from the experts who do this every day.

Importance of sustainable event management

Today, the importance of sustainable event management is absolutely key. Reports reveal that 70% of employees want sustainability from their employer, and that expectation extends to corporate events.

The interest in sustainability isn’t just a buzzword, it’s a crucial response to the growing climate crisis and must be a serious business objective. However, it’s also a big plus for your brand’s reputation too. By taking sustainability into account, your company looks more appealing in front of existing and prospective clients, customers and employees that are serious about Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) agendas.

As well as that, adopting sustainable practices often leads to significant cost savings. By optimising resource use and minimising waste disposal fees – like turning off unnecessary lights and opting for digital resources over printed materials – you can maximise your event’s efficiency and budget. It’s a win-win, benefiting both your business and our planet.
