Sustainable Spaces: Events

Certified Sustainable Events

Certified Sustainable Events consider a range of ecological, social and economic sustainability impacts while planning, executing and closing their events.  Through the certification process, events generate less waste, conserve energy and educate their attendees.  This certification is most effective when undertaken at the onset of event planning and provides an opportunity to raise the profile of your event.  Officially certified events receive access to display banners, support and resources to implement sustainable initiatives, as well as promotion and recognition.
