Greener Events Guide

photograph

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Although the guide and companion guides are no longer updated the checklists are useful reference documents and the general advice still applies to anyone organising an event.

The Greener Events Guide

Checklist only (word)

To view a 4 minute video made in 2008 about the guide click here: YouTube.

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 ISO 20121 superseded BS 8901 in 2012.

Low Carbon Hierarchy

The route to a low carbon, climate friendly economy. SW EEMG members and others may wish to use this image for their own promotional work (right click on image and save to your PC):-

The Low Carbon Hierarchy
The most cost-effective solution for reducing your carbon footprint is to:
1. REDUCE energy use by avoiding unnecessary use and implementing energy efficiency measures. You should include the design of your goods and services and also look up and down your supply chain. Once you have increased your efficiency you should then look to
2. REPLACE fossil fuels with renewable energy sources and/or use cleaner fossil fuel technology such as Combined Heat and Power (CHP) where it is feasible to do so. Finally, having reduced your carbon emissions through avoiding waste, energy efficiency and use of renewable cleaner sources, you can
3. NEUTRALISE the remaining unavoidable emissions through carbon offsetting schemes.

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.

Quick Start Guide to Energy Monitoring & Targeting (pdf 544kb) - this includes useful advice on how to use the CUSUM technique for energy management.
