All event services business can review the following criteria to understand what actions they can undertake to reduce emissions from staff travel to and from events.
There is an environmental / travel policy in place which details organisation intentions to reduce emissions from staff travel in both operations and event deliveries with clear organisational reduction targets. Don’t have one? Download a template.
To detail how the impact of staff travel will be mitigated, a Sustainable Event Travel & Travel Plan is created in partnership with clients / delivery partners. Need inspiration? Download a template.
Low impact or slow-travel solutions have been communicated to staff with the expectation that these modes will be used, wherever it does not adversely impact crew wellbeing.
An objective to measure at least 80% of staff travel is in place, to calculate the associated emissions for post-event reporting.
Staff are offered an opportunity to carbon balance (offset) the impact of their travel.
Staff travel to and from events is carbon balanced (offset) regardless of whether or not staff have balanced their own travel.
Data on staff travel is reported post-event to identify where future emission reductions can be made. Learnings are shared with clients / suppliers to shape performance improvements for future events.
