As plazz AG, we have noticed a strong increase in our customers’ commitment to sustainability at events even before the German Climate Protection Act. Following the “Fridays for Future” movement, it has become clear that sustainability is no longer a pretty add-on. That’s why we at plazz AG are delighted to have organized a webinar on the subject of climate -neutral events with the experts from ClimatePartner, Stephan Meier and Loïc Maßen.
Focus of the event
The main focus of the event was an panel discussion, which was produced as a livestream from the studio of the company WILHELM & WILLHALM. The talk discussed and analyzed some controversial and current issues regarding the transformation process towards a climate -neutral event industry. For example, why there are hardly any offset projects within Germany or how ClimatePartner counters accusations of greenwashing. Some questions & topics were suggested directly by participants, thanks to the Q&A function.
Increasing attention to climate -neutral event management
According to an interactive survey conducted during the event, more than 50% of the audience has already looked into climate -neutral events. „Change ist the new normal“ is more applicable than ever in the event industry. The ecosystem of events will change massively and permanently. The Corona pandemic has brought additional momentum to transformation processes that have already been underway. In the future, event management will be expected to deal precisely with this topic and to clarify whether their event is not only sustainable, but also climate neutral. Or whether all steps of the triad for climate- neutral events, avoidance / reduction / compensation, have been consistently implemented.
Collaboration, innovation, information, interaction is required to proactively shape this new normal. That’s why you should get informed today, with our previous blog posts and checklist. Or watch the full recording of our webinar on carbon neutral events!
