Our sustainability commitment
We believe in the power of communities coming together in person to connect, share stories, and learn. Recognising the environmental impact of large conferences, we make the following commitments:
Achieve Carbon Neutral Certification for DO24
We are dedicated to obtaining Carbon Neutral Certification from Climate Active for our 2024 event. This commitment represents the beginning of a new standard for all our future events, ensuring that we are not just part of the conversation on sustainability but are actively leading by example.
Carbon Neutrality by 2025
Our ambitious goal is to become completely carbon neutral for our organisation and all events by 2025. This involves a comprehensive approach to reducing our ecological footprint, including meticulous planning, innovative design, and responsible resource management.
Continuous improvemenent to lead the way
We pledge to continually assess and improve our sustainability practices. This commitment to ongoing improvement means that everything we do presents an opportunity to learn, innovate, and apply new strategies to reduce our environmental impact further, ensuring a greener and more sustainable future for our industry.
Planning and preliminary review
Our initial stage involves a detailed assessment of the potential environmental impact. We establish best practices and set ambitious targets for reducing our event's carbon footprint.
Sustainable design and pre-production
In this phase, we focus on creating environmentally friendly event designs. Every aspect of our supply chain is scrutinised to ensure minimal environmental impact and maximum sustainability.
Execution and post-event evaluation
Our plans come to life during the event, followed by a thorough post-event analysis. We aim for effective waste management, resource conservation, and detailed reporting on our sustainability achievements.
