Know your impact
Every event hosted at EICC, regardless of size, can receive a detailed and bespoke Event Impact Report. The reports describe the event's specific environmental, economic and social impacts – both positive and negative. Your unique report will also recommend improvements for sustainability for your next event, whether it is at EICC or elsewhere.
Multiple factors, including plastic use, energy consumption and waste management, is used to calculate the environmental impact of events held at EICC. For carbon footprint, five main streams are measured, covering: energy, waste, water, travel, and procurement.
Both social and economic impacts of events are less reported but the Event Impact Reports will address this as we recognise that sustainability can not be achieved unless all three areas of impact are understood.
Event Organisers can use the reports for their own sustainability reporting processes, as well as for PR purposes to demonstrate their commitment to operating in the most sustainable way possible. The reports will also be useful for our clients acquiring accreditations like ISO 140001, and will have the potential to foster sponsorship opportunities for clients.
