"We are green" a new initiative for a greener event industry and a better world

Eventex Awards announce their new ‘We are green” initiative. The campaign is running
under the slogan “Commit to greener events for a better world” and aims to raise
environmental awareness, inspire a more sustainable approach in the event industry
and build a community of green-thinking organizers. Eventex is giving a “We are green”
digital badge to any upcoming event that commits to implement at least 3 out of 10
green event practices. The badge is meant to represent the organizer’s green
commitment and serve as an inspiration to others.
“We chose to launch the initiative on World Environmental Day - when everyone should
stop for a moment and think about how we can contribute to saving the environment
through our work and everyday life activities. For us event organizers, that means
adopting more sustainable practices. Whether you implement just a few green ideas for
your next event or try for 100% sustainability, it all makes a difference! So, with the “We
are green” campaign, we want to encourage the event organizers to commit to at least 3
green event practices for their upcoming event”, comments Ovanes Ovanessian,
Co-Founder of Eventex Awards.
The 10 “We are green” practices are:
● Choose sustainable venue
● Reduce single-use plastics
● Reduce paper use
● Go for sustainable catering
● Reduce to a minimum standard gifts/giveaways or choose sustainable options
● Inspire sustainable practices at the event
● Save energy
● Reduce greenhouse gas emissions from event-related transport
● Recycling and/or composting
● Carbon offset programs
“Implementing green practices doesn't necessarily mean extra expenses - some could
even save you money. For example, using badges and lanyards from recycled materials
and asking attendees to return them, so they can be reused. We’ve always tried to
adopt as many green practices as possible at Eventex Awards, like not using paper,
throwing a 100% online award ceremony and giving out trophies made of recycled
plastic for the last 2 editions of the competition. We believe that the “We’re green
badge” will inspire more event organizers and together we will make a true difference
for a greener world”, adds Simona Harizanova, Co-founder of Eventex Awards.

Applying for a “We’re green” badge is absolutely free and takes a minute. For more
