Planning a Sustainable EventThere are many ways to reduce the environmental impact of events. It is important to plan ahead and to communicate goals with everyone that is involved in an event, including vendors, sponsors and exhibitors.
Richmond Sustainable Event Toolkit
The City of Richmond is committed to being a municipal leader in sustainable practices. To support event organizers in planning sustainable events, the City of Richmond has developed a 7 Step Quick Guide and a Sustainable Event Toolkit.
Using the available resources will benefit events through the planning cycle, as well as improve the environmental, social and economic impacts events have on the community. Visit Richmond Sustainable Event for more information.
Report on Your Sustainable Event
Once an event is finished, complete the five minute survey, found here, identifying the sustainable features incorporated into the event. The more feedback received from the organizers, the more sustainable events will be in the future.
Sustainable Event Survey and Reward Program
Completing the City of Richmond's Sustainable Event Survey allows the City of Richmond to identify the sustainable features of all events. After reviewing the sustainable practices, event planners might be recognized as a Sustainable Event Champion!
The 7 Step Quick Guide along with the Toolkit are an initiative of the City of Richmond and the Richmond Olympic Oval in Partnership with the International Academy of Sport Science Technology/Academie Internationale des Sciences et Techniques du Sport (AISTS) in Lausanne, Switzerland.
