We aim to be more environmentally responsible by focusing on:
Education is key to understanding how to be fully sustainable and it is our mission to educate our clients on what actions they can take for a sustainable event. We not only aim to reduce the number of resources we use for each event, but we also try to reuse or repurpose as often as possible. We also aim to support our local communities’ environmental efforts by repurposing items to continue their life cycle.
In recognition of this ongoing process towards a sustainable future, we have created an Environmental Sustainability Policy that is ingrained in our daily operations and ensures that we are a responsible and proactive partner who will take a proactive role in reducing your environmental footprint and becoming more socially responsible. We adhere to all legal and other applicable requirements while striving to develop the sustainability of our event services and operations.
We aim to be more socially responsible by focusing on:
We will continuously improve our environmental footprint by establishing clear objectives for each event, and providing an environmental impact report that measures what we set out to achieve.
