In this guide we have so far addressed the footprint of the event itself and the carbon footprint left behind by participants due to travel, accommodation and consumption. However, to truly make the event a driver of sustainable development, you must take a step further by actively inspiring participants and vendors to commit to sustainability on a local and global level. Key questions to ask yourself are:
- How do we ensure that sustainability becomes the default approach of our organisation when planning events in the future?
- How do we ensure that all our staff is knowledgeable enough about sustainability to make qualified choices?
- How do we inspire others in the industry to systematically adopt sustainable event management?
- How do we inspire our own participants, exhibitors and sponsors to embrace sustainable practices?
