During your time spent in Tasmania it will be clear to see the adoration and appreciation this state has for the land and the environment as a whole. Businesses actively pursue new and effective methods to operate in a more sustainable manner and the locals celebrate the natural beauty found here. 

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. 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.
