The Save (Sustainability Action for Venues & Events) poster depicts a 'route map' of the journey that companies can follow to take action to better their business.

The poster comes with guidance notes on choosing a sustainability representative to enable companies to drive their internal programme.

Eco Events director Sam Wilson said that the poster is designed to provide a framework to fit around a company's business plan: "We have been working with large organisations for a number of years to help them achieve certification, but I wanted to assist the smaller companies too. Most cannot afford the services of a consultant, whilst others may not want to achieve certification, but they still need to manage their operations and maintain legal compliance."
 
Dale Parmenter, group director of drpgroup and vice chair of Eventia, added: "We have created an engagement tool that brings strategy to life. The poster has been designed to be complimentary to ISO20121 certification through a step-by-step journey that visually declares a commitment to take action. Client requirements are increasing every year so the industry needs a managed approach to meeting them, and to deliver the evidence that policies have been not just supported, but contributed to."
