There is an environmental policy / production policy in place which details organisation intentions to reduce emissions and waste from event graphics and signage. Don’t have one? Download a template.
To detail how the environmental impact of graphics and signage will be mitigated, a Sustainable Event Production Plan is created in partnership with clients / delivery partners. Need inspiration? Download a template.
A venue assessment and inventory is conducted to assess suitability of existing way-finding signage to reduce duplication or production of unnecessary single-use signage.
Humans signage and digital solutions such as existing AV, digital maps and apps are used wherever possible to reduce printing requirements. This is tracked as a % total against printed items.
No PVC materials are used for any graphics or signage.
All small format collateral for audience and staff, including event communications, are digitally distributed instead of printed, except in cases of Accessibility.
Where the production of new graphics and signage is unavoidable, an objective is in place to divert the majority of these from landfill and incineration with a concurrent plan in place to ensure this.
Materials used are measured by weight or volume and their onward life is tracked according to reusing / repurposing / recycling / landfill or incineration.
Progress against any targets set on material usage and onward life is reported post-event to understand what was produced and how it was managed. These learnings are shared with clients / suppliers to shape performance improvements for sustainable graphics and signage in future events.
