An umbrella group of event buyers and suppliers has committed itself to becoming compliant with the BS8901 sustainable events standard.

Ten companies have signed up to the BS8901 Implementation Programme, an initiative being managed by consultancy the Sustainable Events Group (SEG). The ten are: 

  • 15 Hatfields
  • Close Circuit
  • Eden Catering
  • Excel London
  • Innovision
  • Limelight Sports
  • Marylebone Cricket Club (Lord's Cricket Ground)
  • Professional Lighting and Sound Association (PLASA) Events
  • Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
  • The Workers Beer Company

"This gives the UK event industry a chance to lead the world in applying sustainability principles," said SEG's Tim Sunderland.

The programme is centred around five workshops, where companies will swap ideas with the aim of providing a cost effective route to BS8901 compliance.

The sesions are being held at London's 15 Hatfields venue and learnings will feed into the BS8901 review process, just initiated by BSI British Standards.

The current programme is full, but further sessions are being organising - those interested should contact SEG.
