1. Measuring Event GHGs

1. Measuring Event GHGs

Greenhouse gases occur at every turn during an event’s lifecycle - mains electricity, gas in kitchens, fuel in mobile power generators, site plant and equipment. And of course the big one, air travel. GHG’s are  also hidden in an event’s materials and supplies, in the...
2. Footprinting Methodology

2. Footprinting Methodology

Many events are using undisclosed methodologies in the assessment of  GHGs to be included in an event's carbon footprint. This article aims to clarify the steps to identifying, establishing and reporting an event's 'carbon footprint'. The underlying premise of any...
4. Which GHGs Should be Measured?

4. Which GHGs Should be Measured?

The big question is how to decide and justify what you will measure? Linked to this is identifying where reductions could occur, and what you can do to actually achieve those reductions. And finally - is it even practical to try and measure those reductions? Luckily...
3. What GHGs Could Be Measured?

3. What GHGs Could Be Measured?

Greenhouse gas emissions occur at events through the direct operational impacts such as power provision, and through transport of people and equipments. GHGs are also caused upstream and downstream of the event; embedded GHGs in the products used, and through waste...
5. GHG Reductions and Carbon Compensation

5. GHG Reductions and Carbon Compensation

This of course is the moment - after you've made your pre-event GHG assessments and worked out what and how you'll measure your event's GHGs, you then need to put a plan in place to do something about all those GHGs to get to Carbon Neutrality. There are several...
6. Achieving Carbon Neutrality

6. Achieving Carbon Neutrality

Planning for and claiming that an event is 'carbon neutral' is becoming increasingly popular. This section offers guidance on how to authentically claim a Carbon Neutral Event. As discussed earlier, PAS 2060, Specification for demonstration of carbon neutrality offers...
