The Event Resource Management Plan (RMP) tool is designed to help event organisers, venues and suppliers in their pre-event procurement and waste reduction activities, in-event waste recycling, and post event materials reuse and recycling.

The tool can also be used by organisers seeking BS8901 accreditation and has been awarded a ‘London 2012 Inspire Mark’.

"This is an exciting new sector for WRAP to work with. We have drawn on our experience of working with clients, retailers, brands and local authorities in the retail and construction sectors in developing this tool," said Wrap head of products and materials Mervyn Jones.  

"The tool will help event organisers to forecast and work on a plan to reduce their environmental impact when putting an event together."

Locog head of sustainability David Stubbs said that the tool would be used by Olympic organisers in the run-up and during the Games.
