Ever wondered how to make events more sustainable? You’re not alone. Environmentally friendly events and conferences are a key trend for this year, and they’re destined to become the industry standard. In an era where everyone can see the direct effects of their lifestyle choices on climate change, every event is likely to be scrutinized.
According to MeetGreen’s research, the average conference attendee produces over 170 kilograms of CO2 emissions per day. A three-day conference for 1,000 people creates 5,670 kilograms of waste, over half of which will go directly to a landfill!
With increasing awareness of the impact of Climate Change, audiences care about sustainability, some with deep conviction. Introducing sustainable practices at the center of event organization is likely to get noticed and appreciated, strengthening the brand, building a positive reputation, and proving that corporate social responsibility is something you take seriously. Miss this one, and increasingly, it will be noticed too.
How about organizing a conference or an event that's actually good for the planet? We are here to help across a whole range of areas:
Include your support to Sacred Groves in your conference brochure, press and Social Media announcements and conference announcements.
Each Sacred Groves Cluster costs USD 50 for a 10-year support price which is equivalent to a bunch of flowers or typical conference gifts such as pens, diaries and traditional conference give-aways. Sacred Groves Clusters make meaningful digital gifts that take a few minutes to send anywhere across the world.
Enhance the authenticity of your conference with the help of custom dashboards shared by Sacred Groves that indicate the forest area protected, pollution removal, carbon sequestered and the biodiversity protected by virtue of the support extended.
Invite conference participants to join a community of environmentally sensitive individuals. Help them experience a personal journey of climate action. It's a great way to bring people together and drive long lasting change.
Measure your environment footprint and protect Sacred Groves Clusters to balance the impact. For virtual conferences it gets even better with the opportunity to create climate positive experiences and making a statement!
