Leading figures within the events industry have met to establish a collaborative approach to sustainability within UK events.
Positive Impact, which aims to improve the economic, environmental and social surroundings of the event sector, organised the meeting at The Athenaeum in London as part of a series to create a vision for improved sustainability.
It included representatives from organisations including International Confex, The Athenaeum, RLC Productions, Gallowglass, Manchester Central, the Sustainable Events Summit, VisitEngland, ECO Venues, and Positive Impact.
The meeting focused on incentivising brands to commit to sustainability at the top level of the supply chain, working with the industry to clearly communicate a ‘journey’ for businesses looking to improve its sustainable credentials and establishing a wider reason for supporting sustainability through being a better business.
“It’s great to see the industry collaborating, to ensure we have the right level of leadership and innovation,” said Fiona Pelham, MD of Positive Impact.
“Positive Impact has led a series of group meetings and will continue to facilitate these meetings every six months, hopefully with an increasing number of industry input.”
Manchester Central recently powered up with a new sustainability scheme by becoming one of the first major venues in the UK to have electric vehicle charging points installed.
