Eventia publishes BS8901 guide

Event industry association Eventia has produced an online guide to BS8901, the British Standard for sustainable event management.

Available on the dedicated CSR pages of Eventia's website, the guide was developed by several members of the organisation with input from hoteliers, agencies and venues.

It summarises the different steps within the standard and sets out what an organisation might aim to achieve within each, such as drafting a corporate policy on sustainability; engaging with and identifying the issues and concerns of stakeholders; and measurement and process reviewing.

"Through discussion with Eventia members it became clear that there was a need for clarification of the actions those within the industry should be taking," said Eventia board member for CSR Aileen Reuter. "We hope the online guide will help those within the industry move closer to achieving sustainable events."
