Sustainability

Get in touch

Consciously making every moment count

We believe that sustainability starts with us: our personal values and intentions; our way of seeing the world; our way of interacting with others.

Last year, the emc3 community decided to put our heads together and figure out how to make a difference in our industry.

We wanted to go green, but we didn’t know what green really meant.

To become experts in this field, we took several courses, both in the United States and the United Kingdom, so that we can make informed decisions and understand, in detail, how to reduce an event’s environmental impact at each and every touch point.

While many of our clients might have some sustainability objectives for events – waste conservation, carbon emissions, food waste reduction, plastic reduction – they might not have the specific knowledge of how and where to execute these differences.

In response to this, in 2020 we will be working towards becoming a “carbon neutral” company.
