Making your event more sustainable

As part of our commitment to sustainability the Cork Convention Bureau is here to help in making your conference or event as sustainable as possible. Over the past number of years we have been involved in the planning of numerous MICE events here in Cork with a sustainability focus and we would be delighted to talk with you today on how to ensure your event leaves a positive environmental, social and economic legacy in the region.

As part of our focus on sustainability we strive towards environmental responsibility as demonstrated through our goal of creating sustainable business tourism in Cork. Our commitment to protecting the planet has inspired us to partner with local meeting and event professionals who share similar values. To do this, we use the strategies and principles outlined in the GDS-Index Regenerative Event Checklist:

A guide to help you start on the road to running a green meeting or event, to incorporate environmental considerations throughout all stages of the meeting in order to minimise the negative impact on the environment and positively contribute to host communities.
