B Green
With so many event companies attaining B Corp status, we explore what the certification means and why your business should consider it. In recent years the event industry, like many other industries, has undergone a significant shift towards sustainability and corporate responsibility. With growing environmental concerns and increasing consumer demand for ethical business practices, event companies are seeking ways to align their operations with values that prioritise people and the planet. One powerful tool gaining traction in this movement is B Corp certification, which has gained enough traction that even big name brands such as Innocent drinks, The Body Shop, and Jamie Oliver are adopting it.
In The Bag
Virtual delegate goodie bags can tick many boxes for event planners as we move towards a sustainable future. Audience engagement is a top priority for successful events, with accessibility and sustainability always a consideration. Virtual goody bags can deliver all three for busy event professionals. A modern, sustainable twist on the traditional delegate bag, the bag is designed to be tailored and branded for any event and allows event organisers to share sponsors’ and exhibitors’ promotional goodies including product discounts, vouchers, competition prizes, exclusive content, and digital downloads.
