Case Studies


  1. Another one I came across at the Sustainable Events Summit. Sustainable Events Guide:Why event planners should consider sustainability and information on how to do it (http://www.seventeenevents.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/sustainable-events-guide.pdf) by Seventeen Events

  2. Grace Porter pointed me to the “Copenhagen Sustainable Meetings Protocol (CSMP)“.

    Press release says: “A new advanced level guide, for sustainable event management The Copenhagen Sustainable Meetings Protocol, which uses the United Nations’ COP15 conference in Copenhagen as its case study, provides clear example to show event planners the ease and strategic value of combining sustainability in their meetings management with bottom line success.”

    It looks very interesting combining GRI (Global Reporting Initative) including their Event Sector Supplement, BS8901 (Specification and guidance for creating and implementing a sustainable event management system) and APEX Green Meeting standards.

  3. The ‘The Hannover Principles: Design for Sustainability’ are interesting, they were prepared for EXPO 2000 (The World’s Fair, Hannover, Germany) by William McDonough & Partners. McDonough co-authored Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things, with Michael Braungart. Predating the Cradle to Cradle book they contain many of the underlying ideas.

  4. I forgot to add this following the Sustainable Events Summit earlier in the year. The London 2012
    Sustainability guidelines – corporate and public events
    (May 2010). It’s focused on helping those organising events related to the 2012 Olympics meet the sustainability goals of the event.
