The latter is aimed at encouraging businesses to share their "Positive Impact" on sustainability via a dedicated website. Content will include examples of sustainable events and an interactive map showing initiatives across the globe.

Rick Stainton, Smyle's managing director, added: "This award-winning event pioneers the way in sustainable thinking. Only by understanding the priorities of what global brands are thinking in this area will we truly be able to direct our own industry forwards."
