Reuter: need for clarification on BS8901

Industry association Eventia has developed an online guide to sustainable event standard BS8901.

The guide forms part of the CSR section of the Eventia website and was created with input from hoteliers, agencies and venues.

The move follows workshop sessions involving Eventia members and BSI British Standards, during which imnplementation of key steps were reviewed and feedback provided.

"Through discussion with members it became clear there was a need for clarification of the actions the industry should be taking," said Eventia board member for CSR and Maritz marketing director Aileen Reuter.

"We also provided BSI with feedback which they will consider incorporating into their own review of the standard over the coming months. We hope the online guide will help those within the industry move closer to achieving sustainable events".

Look out for C&IT's third annual CSR guide, included with the January issue of C&IT magazine.
