What can the platform do?

The platform is simple and does not require any specialized knowledge. After the data has been entered, the platform generates a detailed and comprehensive evaluation for the organizer. 

Through the platform, you can:

  • measure the sustainability of the event according to widely recognized indicators;
  • compare the registered event with previous and other events; and
  • gather new ideas on how the sustainability of the event can be strengthened.

  4. Employee motivation increases with their commitment to sustainability.
  5. The goodwill of the authorities and participants increases.
  6. Acceptance and support for the event increases among residents and those affected.

Core issues

Waste

Is a professional waste management system used? How much waste is produced? What measures are in place to reduce, recycle and reuse the waste?

Procurement

How sustainable are your procurement methods? Are products sourced from within the region or from farther away? Have human rights been respected in your procurement practices? Do the textiles and paper you use meet the criteria of sustainable and decent procurement?

Catering

Does the organization have a clear strategy for healthy and sustainable food and offer a diverse range of seasonal, vegetarian and vitamin-rich products? Are the most afforable drinks non-alcoholic?

Mobility

Is there a convincing mobility strategy that promotes environmentally friendly means of transport? Does the organization cooperate with public transport institutions? How many emissions does the arrival and departure produce?

Safety & Security

Is there a comprehensive security concept that strategically analyzes potential sources of danger and covers the most important components of a security concept?

Water

How careful are you with water consumption? Must water always be drinking quality, or is non-potable water acceptable? Specifically, can processed water be used? Where can water consumption be optimized?

Energy

With a sophisticated energy concept based on the use of renewable energy sources and innovative, energy-efficient technologies, you not only reduce energy consumption and costs, but also your CO2 emissions.
