Commitment to sustainability
EIC Centre for Sustainable Events launches
The Events Industry Council continues its commitment to green the global events industry with the launch of the EIC Centre for Sustainable Events, unveiled at IMEX America in Las Vegas. The new centre will provide resources to increase the adoption of industry-wide sustainable practices and support a stronger alignment to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. According to EIC officials, the virtual hub will offer online reference materials, on-demand education via EIC’s new learning management system, monthly webinars and access to education from 33 member organisations. “The centre will provide the sustainability education our industry needs for us to make a collective impact on the climate crisis as well as champion social and economic community needs,” remarks EIC’s board chair Tina Wehmeir. One of the key initiatives that the new centre will be pursuing is the release of the EIC Sustainable Event Standards, a revised edition of the APEX/ASTM Environmentally Sustainable Meeting Standards. The new guidelines maintain the same level of rigor but are easier to adopt and implement.
