WE ARE GREEN

ENGAGE WITH THE ONE AND ONLY BUSINESS EVENT GREENING AGENCY IN THE NATION AS WE MAKE SURE YOUR OCCASION FULFILLS YOUR SOCIAL DUTY

Sustainable Event Management is the process used to produce an event with particular concern for environmental, economic and social issues. Green Event Management Service incorporates socially and environmentally responsible decision making into the planning, organization and implementation of, and participation in, an event.

Our Unique Green Event Management Service involves including sustainable development principles and practices in all levels of Event Management, and aims to ensure that an event is hosted socially responsible manner. It represents the total package of interventions at an event, and needs to be done in an integrated manner. Our Event Greening process would start at the inception of the project, and would involve all the key role players, such as clients, organizers, venues, sub-contractors and suppliers.

We will help our clients at every stage of the event to understand where their opportunities exist for reducing waste and act green leading to sustainability, during and after an event.

  • Forecast the types of waste that will be generated at each stage of your event;
  • Measure reductions in waste
  • Provide feedback and a post-event report; and
  • Complement other recycling ‘on the go’ initiatives you may be undertaking

HOW CAN OUR GREEN EVENT MANAGEMENT SERVICE HELP YOU?

Blue Arc Green Event Management Solutions is the one and only Green Business Event Management Service in Sri Lanka. Using this service at an early stage will help you identify key opportunities for you and your team to re-use items and reduce event waste. This will help you:

  • Reduce material and waste management costs;
  • Meet environmental targets and client requirements;
  • Maximize the value from your waste;
  • Take account of your construction activity;
  • Demonstrate compliance with BS8901 and ISO20121; and
  • Identify opportunities to reduce waste, increase re-use and recycled content.

SOME OF OUR EVENT GREENING ACTIVITIES INCLUDE;

  • LED lighting used right through the property/ venue as much as possible; indoor and outdoor lighting restricted when possible.
  • Menu items are sourced from local and organic services wherever possible
  • Water pitcher and glasses are used in place of bottled water, condiments are served in bulk, all drinks are served in bulk (except for a small selection of soft drinks and bottled beer), all food and beverage is served on china and silverware; no disposable kitchenware is used
  • Comprehensive composting and recycling program is in place during food prep and throughout the conference venue
  • Each catered meal includes a vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free option; some meals are served entirely vegetarian or vegan, including the main evening event of the conference; all plated meals are fully vegetarian or vegan by default
  • All signage is printed on recyclable materials like cardboard and wood, and a lot of it on materials that are already recycled, like our banners that are all printed on fabric that once used to be PET bottles. Moreover, we only print what is necessary and design our signage so that they can be reused over several years. The banners we can’t reuse – they are sent to recycling venture to be turned in to super-cool bags for our own team.
  • All-electric car2go car-sharing program for guest and employee use around Colombo.
  • Sustainability guidelines are distributed to all exhibitors and they are encouraged to reduce printing, not print dates or event name on the materials so they can reuse them later, and we enforce a pack-in, pack-out policy, meaning everything they bring to the event, they have to bring back with them.
  • We do not accept typical swag items like pens and bottle openers with logos on them; we encourage useful and educational products from our sponsors. As gifts, we suggest compost bins for your home kitchen, bags made from recycled billboards, natural self-care products, healthy snacks, biodegradable watches etc.
  • Any leftover materials or items from the gift lounge were donated to local organizations
