Plan-it Green

We understand that event organisers are increasingly concerned with environmental issues associated with holding events. This is why we are proud to have created Plan-it green™; our sustainable events programme comprising of committed stakeholders throughout the EICC.             

We have the following initiatives in place which each of our teams has made a commitment to pursuing:

  • Establishment of a Green Team to adopt and implement earth-friendly practices in our businesses
  • Sourcing and purchasing environmentally sensitive products and services locally, whenever possible
  • Purchasing organic fresh and sustainable foods locally grown, whenever possible.
  • Creating partnerships with other like-minded organisations which are committed to preserving the environment
  • Encouraging our associates to apply eco-friendly practices in their daily operations
  • Energy efficient lighting, heating and cooling systems, as well as water-saving devices
  • Implementing tools that allow us to continually measure the progress of our environmental operations

We're not here to tell you how green your next event should be, that's up to you - but if you're as serious as we are about sustainability, then we can help to make your next event environmentally responsible.

I would like to congratulate you on the work of the Green Team. It is great to hear about real action being undertaken and how working together can make a difference. You have every reason to be proud of your achievements and your drive to become even better.
