If you consider having a sustainable event, you will have to look for a venue which is using green and renewable energy. At Friends House, we use 100% renewable electricity provided by Good Energy.
2Think about transport links
Choosing a venue with excellent transport links, using public transports and organising travelling groups will help reduce your events’ carbon footprint. A well-connected venue, such as Friend House, in Euston, is easy to get to.
3Support local businesses
Think local for your event. Local sourcing enables to cut down costs in the supply chain and supports local employers and businesses. It also means less carbon emissions as transport times are shortened.
4Get in the recycling loop
Using recycled materials for your collaterals contributes to a zero waste to landfill objective. Less waste gets the closed loop recycling going. It also helps saving trees and protecting animals’ habitats. One more reason to go green!
Maintaining transparent relationships with suppliers and stakeholders encourages a more ethical approach to your event. Healthy relationships helps prevent any kind of bad surprises in your invoice and ensures a smoother work process. All our rates are available on our website.

7Remember: your delegates are diverse
All your delegates should be able to attend your event. The venue must be accessible to all, and all delegates should be treated equally and as fairly as possible. Consider event dates do not clash with religious holidays as well.
8Learn from others
You certainly know someone who ran a sustainable event or you have heard about green and ethical venues (like ours!). Contact them, see what they can tell you about their sustainable policies. What is their carbon footprint? What do they do differently from others? Also, research the best practice in the sustainable event sector.
9Embrace organic and locally-sourced food
To be sustainable, an event must include fresh, organic, locally-sourced and Fairtrade products wherever possible. Sustainable food means high-quality products that are traceable and your delegates will undoubtedly appreciate their unique taste, and sometimes their originality. It also contributes to the local economy and on a larger scale helps farmers in developing countries.
