Event planners can use the criteria below to shape onsite waste management practices. Venues and suppliers should be aware of the practices below to facilitate increases in recycling and effective onsite waste management to support their tenants and clients.
There is an environmental policy / production policy in place which details organisation intentions to reduce waste across all pre, live and post production. Don’t have one? Download a template.
To detail how the environmental impact of production across all areas will be mitigated, a Sustainable Event Production Plan is created in partnership with clients / delivery partners. Need inspiration? Download a template.
A target has been set to divert a % of event waste from landfill and incineration.
The onward journey of all production assets are identified post event. These are tracked and recorded according to reusing / repurposing / recycling / landfill or incineration.
Bins are clearly labelled at eye height to facilitate easy recycling and waste disposal for both audience and staff.
Inductions and event briefings communicate recycling and waste ambitions to all staff, including temporary staff, to support progress towards recycling and waste reduction targets.
Onsite waste streams are monitored to ensure waste is correctly segregated to avoid contaminating waste streams and impacting recycling efficacy.
The total weight or volume of assets recycled is measured and recorded as a % of overall assets.
The total weight or volume of assets sent to landfill or incineration is measured and recorded as a % of overall assets.
Data collected is reported post-event to identify where future improvements in sustainable production can be made. Learnings are shared with clients / suppliers to shape performance improvements for future events.
