The value to our industry is clear and immediate. We know that our customers and other stakeholders – including governments – are increasingly concerned about carbon impacts, not just from an industry perspective but as a critical factor in shaping our overall global future prospects. The Net Zero Carbon Events initiative provides an opportunity to demonstrate a positive action plan for addressing this global concern while at the same time acting in solidarity with some of our most important client communities in an area of long term, mutual interest.

Why should my organisation participate?
Climate change is an existential threat to our society and, therefore, to the events industry. Action on climate is related to the continuity of our industry, of our business.

As a complex network of many organisations around the world, it is important that the whole events industry is represented in the drafting of the commitment and development of the initiative. We recognise that there are many different perspectives and priorities and that some organisations are already advanced in their carbon management practices while others are just embarking on the journey. This initiative will endeavour to reflect this diversity.

Through participation your organisation will benefit from the collaborative process which will underpin the work, expanding your own knowledge on climate action, providing connections for your teams with experts around the world, and ensure your communications and reporting is integrated with wider industry messaging, so that your progress can directly feed into that of the whole events industry.

Don’t miss this opportunity to position your organisation as a leader in the global move towards net zero.
