We drive Sutainable Event Management !
But what’s it all about ?
Sustainable event management is the process of integrating environmental and social responsibility issues into event planning.
Sustainable event management requires that we consider the needs and values of different stakeholders that are impacted by our event. On the one hand, we take steps to reduce significant negative impacts, or harm, such as solid waste. While on the other hand we also seek out opportunities for events to leave positive legacies that benefit communities.
We prefer ACTIONS than words !
What we do concretely to drive SEM (Sustainable Event Management) ?
RENEWI is our environmental partner
They are responsible for sorting, treatment and recycling of waste since a couple of years. Renewi is now able to recycle almost 90% of collected waste due to innovations and technical evolutions.
We are partners and work with “Reforest Action”
Their action allow partners and companies to act for mankind and the environment by planting trees and measure their positive impact. Simply Better Events (linked to La Terrasse O2) has planted more than 6000 trees in Haïti. Our partners weight almost 6% in their global actions as together with all the other members we are responsible for the re-plantation of more than 100.000 trees per year in France, Senegal, Haïti, Peru, Equador and Guatemala. With them we act for climat, have an impact on biodiversity, help life conditions for population in difficulty, for us and for the future generations.
