Organise This launched June 2004 as an event management company focused on planning events in a way that was environmentally friendly and community involved.
From the start sustainability was our key focus, point of difference and motivation.
Organise This began by offering a service to clients where sustainability initiatives were delivered without any impact on the client’s objectives. This involved implementing an office sustainability policy and a sustainable procurement policy.
As expertise on sustainability grew within the Organise This team clients welcomed additional initiatives that positively influenced the impact of their events. This included the creation of event specific sustainable development policies and onsite checklists for measuring waste and energy.
In 2005 Organise This was a founder member of Positive Impact a not for profit project to provide education on sustainability for venues, planners and suppliers to the event industry. Members of the Organise This team continue to donate time and expertise to work on Positive Impact education events taking place across the UK.
In 2007 Organise This managing director Fiona Pelham has been a panel member and chair of BS8901 Specification for a Sustainability Management System standard. Organise This was chosen as one of the top 10 UK agencies in the UK demonstrating CSR by Conference and Incentive Travel CSR Campaign for Change.
Organise This launched EventSustainability designed to provide the events industry with a tool to plan and measure sustainability within events and relaunched the tool in 2009 to keep it up to date with the latest BS8901.
In 2010 Sustainable Events Ltd was launched to provide support to companies wishing to implement sustainability within their event or event team.
Organise This believe it is important to share learning on sustainability with their peers and the wider industry and have been fortunate enough to do so through international speaking appointments.
Organise This continue to look for new ways to implement sustainability and push the boundaries of sustainability within the event industry.
