Sustainability

Business Events Tasmania recognises the value of sustainable practices for meeting organisers and delegates and is very supportive of Tasmania’s capacity for delivering sustainable events.

We understand the importance of being a sustainable state that considers its economic, social and ecological footprint as it moves into the future. Our major cities and local councils are committed to finding practical and effective ways to improve energy use throughout the organisation and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

There is an increasing public consciousness around the reduction of waste recycling and business events are no exception. Providing a waste conscious service at business events will not only have benefits for the natural environment but can also enhance the profile of your business or event and has the potential to save you money.

We encourage the use of recyclable, refillable and reusable products, support the promotion of your sustainable message and recommend sharing waste management reports to inform future planning. Together we can make a difference in reducing waste and taking responsibility for the future of our environment.
