Events management consultancy Arinex walks the talk for green events by being the first consultancy in the industry to be certified carbon neutral.

Awarded by Climate Active, Arinex MD Nicole Walker said carbon-neutral certification was part of a long-term commitment to significantly reduce its footprint, while helping clients achieve low carbon footprints in their events.

This was part of other sustainability initiatives that included a Sustainability Policy in 2019 as well as signing up for the IAPCO Plastics Pledge to reduce the amount of plastic used at events.

Arinex also joined more than 310 event industry stakeholders from 48 countries to sign the Net Zero Carbon Events Pledge. Launched during the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), the pledge signifies a joint commitment to achieve net zero carbon events.

The company has also recently moved to a greener building and banned all printed business cards for staff and made the switch to paper-free ‘tap and go’ cards from sustainability start-up Tapt.

“Partnering with Arinex is one of the most affordable ways for clients to start reducing the carbon footprint of their events as the emissions from our activity as an event management company are already offset and go toward offsetting their event, significantly reducing the workload of emission calculations,” said Walker.

She added that while the rise of virtual events in the past two years has had a positive impact on the environment, the return of physical events makes it important to implement strategies that help to reduce, or ideally offset, the footprint.
