CEC AIMS TO HAVE A
net-zero carbon footprint by 2022
As businesses become more eco-conscious, the interest in green and sustainable events is steadily increasing. Public consciousness is growing, and businesses are starting to recognize that accountability and positive decisions around CSR (corporate social responsibility) are more important than ever.
A sustainable event is, according to the United Nations, one designed and organized to meet two objectives: to minimize all potential negative impacts on the environment and leave a beneficial legacy for the host community and all involved.
Organizing a sustainable event reduces a high level of resource consumption in a short period of time (water, energy, food, paper), reduces waste generation, and prevents an increase in CO2 emissions produced by transport and accommodation. In addition, the event also has to be able to leave a positive legacy both socially and economically in the community where it is held.
It’s a task that requires significant planning and coordination to meet specific goals and actions that are assessed regularly and ultimately verified through the authorized agencies.
