The event industry covers a broad spectrum. From small, private events to club and community festivals to doctors’ congresses, music festivals or even large sporting events. No matter how different events may seem, they all share some common denominators when it comes the sources of CO₂ emissions: travel to and from the event and catering for the participants. Besides these factors, waste, energy, resource and material consumption also contribute to the events’ carbon footprint.
How can an event be organised more sustainably? How can I reduce the event’s CO₂ emissions and make it as climate friendly as possible? How can I integrate the visitors in a sustainable concept and enable them to participate?
Arranging an event sustainably presents organisers with major challenges and requires a wide range of different factors to be taken into account. myclimate supports organisers and events with specific measures that help to make the event environmentally friendly and inspire visitors.
myclimate offers the following solutions for more climate protection in the event sector:
Take stock of your company’s CO2 emissions. Calculating your carbon footprint is the first step towards successful climate protection, as it helps you identify the most effective ways to reduce your company’s emissions.
Optimise your value chain and improve your company’s carbon footprint. Reduce your CO2 emissions and contribute towards achieving the climate goals of the Paris Agreement. Improve efficiency and benefit from potential cost savings as well as competitive advantages as a responsible and climate-friendly company.

We therefore recommend actively involving your employees. Last but not least, you will also be able to strengthen your status as a progressive, attractive company.
Offset your CO₂ emissions with myclimate’s carbon offset projects. By offsetting emissions, you not only compensate for unavoidable emissions, but also bring your company one step closer to climate neutrality.
