Your sustainability and environmental statement should state the key aim and objectives for some or all aspects of a responsible and sustainable event. It should be concise, yet strong enough to deliver your message, for example:
‘At xxxx event, we understand our responsibility to protecting and preserving the xxxx area and the wider environment. Our aim is to deliver an enjoyable event without impacting the environment or community in this beautiful and natural area, through:
Please help us meet the aims of our sustainability and environmental statement and leave a better environment for future generations.’
All those involved in the event should be made aware of the statement as their participation is key to ensuring that the key objectives or targets are met. Make sure you are able to measure and publicise the success of your event in relation to the aims and objectives of your sustainability and environmental statement.
