Get Started Today Producing Sustainable Events
MeetGreen has developed a resource for you by distilling hundreds of hours of experience and knowledge into the MeetGreen® Sustainable Event Kit 2.0.
Designed to break down the planning process into manageable steps, the Sustainable Event Kit 2.0 is filled with tested, useful surveys, checklists, best practice guidelines and contract language to use with your vendors. With these resources at your fingertips, you’ll save time and gain confidence to ask the right questions and assess the information received.
Each module also helps to align your event’s goals and outcomes with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDGs are a set of 17 goals developed by the UN designed to address various past, current and future world issues. Several of these goals, such as clean water and energy, sustainable cities and communities, climate action and life on land and below water are actioned directly in our tools. As more governments, companies and events consider SDGs, our kit will help ensure that you are working towards and documenting progress against these goals.
The Kit also contains a template to develop your own Sustainable Event Policy. The template was designed using the ISO 20121: Sustainable Event Standards to assist your organization in the development of a sustainability policy. It lays out the elements needed to create your organizations’ sustainability policy broken into the following sections: Vision, Principles Important Issues, Commitment and Scope, Objectives and Reporting.
What’s Inside the Modules?
Best Practice Guidelines
Covering the key areas of event planning, these checklists help organizers effectively assess their sustainability practices.
Asking the right questions is crucial to collecting useful data. Our comprehensive surveys have what you’ll need to measure the impact of your event and follow up with vendor commitments.
Contract language that addresses your sustainability expectations is critical to success. Our contract language has been used by our clients and suppliers in negotiating and implementing sustainability initiatives (these are offered as samples and should be review and approved by legal counsel).
These infographics will assist you in telling the story and training your team members.
Sustainable Event Policy Template
This template was designed using the ISO 20121: Sustainable Event Standard Framework and will lead your organization through the process of developing its own policy.
Each module has additional resources specific to the area of expertise.
