We are on the Sustainability and Social Impact Committee and a proud contributor to the Sustainable Event Professional Certificate programme.
The SEPC programme is for those events professionals interested in accelerating sustainability and social impact in their organisations and global business events. The programme provides guidance that will be valuable for reaffirming our industry’s commitment to a recovery that is resilient, sustainable and equitable.
This course has recently been expanded from the in-person programme and provides the knowledge and tools for event strategists to design and implement their own sustainable events. Developed by a globally diverse group of business events industry leaders and experts in the areas of sustainability, social impact and event management, this highly interactive and accessible format takes users on an engaging, insightful and easy-to-follow journey.
The Sustainable Event Professional Certificate is comprised of 16 modules that include understanding the business value of sustainability, improving environmental performance of meetings and events, and effective methods for achieving social impact goals. As part of the programme, participants will have access to a digital workbook with activities to customise a roadmap for their own sustainable event. The course culminates in a straightforward “Final Sustainable Capstone Project”; a certificate of completion for 12 CEs and digital badge is awarded as a result.
As a Positive Impact Ambassador, you play a key and valuable role in helping Positive Impact through spreading key messages and starting conversations to get others in the event industry involved in working more sustainably.
