Sustainability & Carbon Measurement Workshops

Learn to calculate your business footprint and understand how to reduce emissions

These short courses get event profs up to speed on sustainability. Customers want it, investors expect it and reporting will be compulsory in the near future. Taking steps now puts you ahead of the game, keeps you relevant to stakeholders and saves you money in the long-term.

Wherever you are on the journey, our workshops provide a framework to measure and reduce your emissions now and set you up for longer-term positive impact. They foster sharing and collaboration and leave you with the tools to report on your ongoing emissions against the UK standard GHG Protocol.

What previous participants thought

 
 
“The workshop series has already given me great insight into how emissions are calculated. Understanding how the venue’s impact ties in with organisers’ and suppliers’ emissions has been extremely valuable. I’m looking forward to learning more in the final session, in preparation for the work we will be undertaking to fulfil Olympia London’s net zero pledge.”

"Thank you so much for the workshop. I have learnt how sustainability reports can be transformed into actions for cleaner events and potentially zero carbon events; the importance of measuring carbon impact from events to compare with next year’s to improve and that communication is key."
