Conference Care has announced a further step in their goal to be the number one choice for organisations looking for a greener approach to venue finding and event management. Following a rigorous audit process Conference Care were awarded Greengage’s ECOsmart certification, recognising a comprehensive approach to environmental sustainability within their business and promoting a green approach to their clients.
Chris Peacock, Director and founder of Conference Care commenting on the certification said, “We’re thrilled to have been accredited with the ECOsmart award, which we’ve been working towards with Greengage for some time. I’m a great believer in taking responsibility for your own actions, and fortunately at Conference Care we have an amazing group of people making up our “Plan-it!” team and who are committed to making a difference“.
A recent poll by Greengage Travel & Event Solutions, amongst corporates and event industry professionals, revealed 81% expecting environmental sustainability to be an important or very important consideration in event planning during 2021.
Andrew Perolls, CEO of Greengage Travel & Event Solutions, believes that, “Event agencies and meeting venues need to be ahead of the curve as the green agenda ramps up. The certification process helps businesses develop their green approach, plug any gaps and then demonstrate their sustainability credentials following an independent audit”.
Commenting on this latest ECOsmart certification, Perolls says, “I am delighted that Conference Care have achieved this award. Chris and the team have been passionate long-term advocates of a more eco-friendly approach to events and have operated as a carbon neutral company since 2010. ECOsmart certification formally recognises this and creates the type of objective benchmark that event organisers are looking for”.
