Choosing a venue that aligns with sustainable practices is a great place to start when it comes to planning a more eco-friendly event. Opt for spaces that are energy-efficient, use renewable energy sources, and have waste reduction initiatives in place. A great venue may also be able to recommend sustianable suppliers, to make every element of your day that bit greener.
As this article on sustainable wedding planning explains, choosing a venue with green certifications is a really impactful way to make your event more eco-friendly. Don’t be afraid to ask your potential venue questions like whether they have a good recycling policy, if they use energy-efficient appliances and where they get their power from. This also helps to show venues that people care about their environmental impact, and encourages them to do more to lower their carbon emissions.
If feasible, select a venue which is easily accessible by public transport - or if guests are coming from overseas, consider how they could join virtually to reduce their carbon footprint and cut their travel time.
