Greener Events Guide
This guide was originally written and produced by Phil Harding and Rachel Malone at the Government Office for the South West (Bristol) and recommended from the outset (in 2005) by Envirowise and the Sustainable Development Commission. The first edition was published in July 2005 and the South West EEMGs became users for their events from then.
Although the guide and companion guides are no longer updated the checklists are useful reference documents and the general advice still applies to anyone organising an event.

Checklist only (word)

Note: BS 8901, referred to in the video, was the first national specification for a sustainable event management system with guidance for use and highlighted the "Greener Events" guide as reference material. ISO 20121 superseded BS 8901 in 2012.

The Low Carbon Hierarchy
Effective Energy Management Guide
Energy management is not a one-off exercise; to be effective it needs to be an ongoing process. This short guide provides a structured approach that businesses can adopt to manage their energy use effectively.
It is based on the original version produced in 2000 by Phil Harding at the Government Office for the South West in partnership with The Carbon Trust and endorsed by CIMA, the Energy Institute and ESTA. It is aligned to the approach of the European Standard for energy management systems (EMSs), EN 16001, and the equivalent British Standard BS EN 16001.
The guide was last updated in 2010 and is now retained here as a useful archived reference document, especially for those new to corporate energy management.
