The first step in improving environmental sustainability? Know your options.

Information overwhelm often stops organizations from addressing their event’s sustainability. There’s no wonder—the options and logistics can be super confusing. Maybe you’re not sure what’s even possible.

  • Which practices should you prioritize financially?

  • Which actions align best with your values?

  • Is it worth it if you can’t “do it all”? 

Our event consulting services turn the massive topic of environmental sustainability into an actionable plan that works for your organization’s specific needs.

“Romina identified what we could do within the realms of what we had access to.”

“There’s not this bold standard. She meets people where they’re at and helps them determine the next best step to make their program or event more sustainable. It felt very accessible and understanding of our budget, resources, and time limitations.

Plus, it amplified the narrative of us doing good work.”

— Lee-Anne Bigwood, Program Manager, StopGap Foundation | Ramp Up 2019

“It has made our decision-making process so much easier and helps us demonstrate to our clients the work we’re doing to make their events and activities kinder to the planet.”

“I was working on shifting Lovedey to more sustainable experiential production but felt overwhelmed with where to start. Romina spent time asking lots of questions and getting to know my business and my concerns. She shared really helpful information and suggested we create a sustainability guide to anchor Lovedey’s production process moving forward. My favourite part of the guide Romina prepared for us is the concrete examples she included, as well as the vetting questions, complete with a point system. It has made our decision-making process so much easier and helps us demonstrate to our clients the work we’re doing to make their events and activities kinder to the planet.”

Questions are always welcome

Absolutely, we love to! If you’re an event planner (or you’ve hired one), you know your events best. We can act as the environmental expert, providing sustainability guidance and collaborating with you in the best way for your needs. 

Yes! If you’ve run your event in the past, we’ll collect the necessary data and identify ways you can lower your footprint going forward. If you haven’t run your event yet, we’ll take a look at your projected impact and find ways we can adjust your plan.

Heck no. Not if we have anything to do about it. Greenwashing and vague sustainability claims drive us bananas because they do more harm than good. We have zero patience for that. We choose every strategy and action step because it has a real, incremental impact. We’ll also help you clearly define your actions so you, your team, and your attendees understand how it’s actually benefiting the environment.

Our clients have ranged from grassroots arts organizations and social justice organizations to global product-based companies. The important thing is we share social values and you want to reduce your environmental impact because it’s the right thing to do—all while producing a fantastic event.

The key factors are your budget and your team’s capacity. We’ve designed each consulting package to give you actionable steps that limit your environmental impact. If you have a smaller budget and a team that can implement, an Eco Brainstorm Session or Event Sustainability Roadmap may be best. 

If you have more budget and you want someone to take hands-on control, In-House Eco Support is usually the way to go. Book a discovery call and we’ll help you determine which is best for you.

That’s what we’re here for! We’ll guide you through questions to identify your goals and the best plan of action
