Incisive Media Events has partnered with BusinessGreen, the UK's leading green business media brand, to help deliver on our sustainability strategy. Incisive Media Events mission in partnership with BusinessGreen is to create a genuinely sustainable events business.
As part of the new strategy, Incisive Media will commit to working towards the ISO20121 https://www.iso.org/iso-20121-sustainable-events.html sustainable events standard.
Our goal is to reduce our paper consumption, improve recycling rates, curb food waste and cut red meat at all our events. We will also look to deliver carbon offsetting at our events wherever relevant. In addition, we will be asking all suppliers to provide detailed information on their sustainability credentials and initiatives, we will ban plastic straws at all of our events, and we will focus on and highlight how to travel to our events via public transport.
