1. Sustainable events

Environmental change is one of the biggest challenges facing the events and festivals sector.

Event organisers face pressure from all sides. They have the desire to act responsibly. But they also want to deliver events that are sustainable and environmentally responsible.

Many event organisers have responded positively to the challenge. Nowadays, they're high-profile ambassadors for the innovation that drives sustainability across the sector.

We are pleased to work in partnership with Business Energy Scotland. Together, we support our events and festivals sector in the development and delivery of sustainable events.

Advice is available to event organisers and suppliers in our latest practical guide. It provides a useful overview on how to plan and deliver environmentally sustainable events.
