IAEE Achieves EIC Sustainability Again

 

The International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) announced that Expo! Expo! IAEE’s Annual Meeting & Exhibition 2023 has been recognized by the Events Industry Council (EIC) for achieving the Silver Level Certification in its Sustainable Event Standards. Expo! Expo! previously achieved Bronze Level Certification in 2022.

“We are proud to receive the prestigious Silver Certification from the EIC,” said IAEE president and CEO Marsha Flanagan, M.Ed., CEM. “Earning this certification, especially moving up a level from our previous efforts, reflects our ongoing commitment to improving our sustainability initiatives. EIC’s Sustainable Event Standards provided us with a blueprint for maximizing our resources and reducing Expo! Expo!’s environmental impact.”

The EIC Sustainable Event Standards are specific standards for environmental and social responsibility within the events industry. Created by the EIC Sustainability and Social Impact Committee in partnership with industry professionals and leading sustainability practitioners, the requirements provide event planners and suppliers with prescriptive actions for producing and delivering sustainable events.

“IAEE’s team has demonstrated a commitment to the environmentally and socially responsible practices that are needed to support long-term sustainability in our industry. We are pleased to see them achieve an even higher level of certification this year,” said EIC CEO Amy Calvert.

The standard specifies performance criteria in the areas of organizational management, marketing, communications and engagement, climate action, water management, materials and circularity, supply chain management, diversity, equity and inclusion, accessibility, and social impact.
