Delivering sustainable events

Environmental change is one of the biggest challenges facing the events and festivals sector. Alongside the desire to act responsibly, event organisers face pressure from all sides to deliver events that are sustainable and environmentally responsible.

Many event organisers have responded positively to the challenge and have become high-profile ambassadors for the innovation that drives sustainability across the sector.

We are pleased to work in partnership with Business Energy Scotland to support Scotland’s events and festivals sector in the development and delivery of sustainable events.

Advice is available to event organisers and suppliers in this 2019 practical guide, which provides a useful overview on how to plan and deliver environmentally sustainable events.
