All events, whether it is big or small, use resources and have negative impacts on the environment. The planning, preparation and conducting of events tend to consume water, energy and materials, and also produce waste and carbon emissions.
We understand that event organisers and venue managers would like to reduce their impacts on the environment and go green, but they are not sure how to start. To help them, we have teamed up with ECO Singapore to produce the Green Events Guide.
This Green Events Guide aims to provide a framework of principles and practical tips on how event and venue managers can start creating greener events by identifying and reducing the various environmental impacts from the event.
If you are organising an event or managing a venue for an event, we hope that you would take the first step in making the event green. The tips in the guide are not exhaustive but the more tips you implement, the greener is your event.
The following key areas are considered for a green event and are discussed in the Green Events Guide:
- Venue and Transport
- Food and Catering
- Energy and Water
- Materials and Waste
