ESSA launches Sustainability Awareness training course

by Joe Gallop

Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) has launched its ESSA Sustainability Awareness training course during National Recycle Week (19-25 September).

The course focuses on key knowledge areas of sustainability theory and practice for the supplier and services sector.

ESSA has created the course in conjunction with sustainability consultancy and ESSA member, Green Circle Solutions, to offer guidance for companies and their staff to follow across principal areas of sustainability.

Whilst most companies are not legally committed to creating strong sustainability strategies, ESSA said it recognises that many of its members are keen to start making a difference now.

ESSA already offers company-level Accredited status, a quality assurance programme for exhibitors, event organisers and venues. A sustainability module is available as part of the ESSA Accreditation which encourages participating companies to build sustainability into their processes.

ESSA director Andrew Harrison, said: “Sustainability, as a core part of business, is a must-have, and those that incorporate it into their business strategies are being socially responsible and are also improving their business and their position in the industry.

“There is a keen appetite amongst our members to embed all aspects of sustainability into the way they do business but it can be incredibly difficult to know where to start which is where this training course comes in. We have designed it in a logical and succinct way to enlighten members and enable them to build their sustainability roadmap whilst dispelling the myths surrounding how complicated it needs to be.”

The Sustainability Awareness training course course is free with unlimited access to full ESSA members. Topics covered include:

  • Sustainability background
  • Understanding our impact
  • The language of carbon
  • Reporting and planning for net zero
