Purple Guide Sustainability Chapter

Eventprofs urged to give feedback on draft Purple Guide Sustainability Chapter

Vision: 2025, the UK outdoor event industry’s steering group for environmental sustainability, has been commissioned by the Event Industry Forum’s (EIF) Purple Grants Fund, to write a new chapter of the Purple Guide on environmental sustainability for events.

The sustainability chapter within the Purple Guide is intended to provide clear guidance on best practices and signpost users to resources and guidance to minimise the carbon impact of events.

Feedback will be reviewed in September and the chapter will be launched on October 18 at the Sustainable Events Summit.

The draft is available online for comment until September 1 and event professionals are asked to provide feedback via this online survey.

The draft has been prepared by an industry working group including Hope Solutions, the Local Authority Event Organiser’s Association (LAEOG), Julies Bicycle, the Association of Festival Organiser’s (AFO) and event organisers including Festival Republic and Shambala.
