From Triple Bottom Line to Net Positive, Materiality Matrix to Circular Economy, the buzz words and language of sustainability can be overwhelming if you’re not living it day in and day out. As venue operators, where do we begin with developing a sustainability program? Is my current program on track? What models are other venues using that might work for me?
While we cannot answer all those questions in a single blurb, IAVM’s Sustainability Committee is here to assist you in finding answers and helping you grow your programs. With that, we invite you to stop by Booth 260, just north of the IAVM Membership Booth at VenueConnect for one of two mini-sessions on sustainability:
Saturday, August 1 @ 5:10 p.m. – Sodexo Composting Mini Session
A growing global problem of breathtaking scope, food waste is the single greatest contributor to American landfills. In this 15-minute session, we’ll explore how composting can be part of the solution to solving the food waste crisis.
Sunday, August 2 @ 12:20 p.m. – GSA’s Greener Cleaning Playbook
Have you thought about green cleaning as a way to reduce operating expenses and health risks to staff and event attendees? It’s possible, and in this 15-minute session, the Green Sports Alliance will introduce you to the Greener Cleaning Playbook, which features some take-aways any venue can implement.
