Events

The events industry is a major source of carbon emissions. Not only does an event itself contribute to emissions through catering, the powering of the space and more, but associated emissions such as travel to and from the event can add up to hundreds or even thousands of tonnes of carbon emissions in a short space of time
Make your event carbon neutral

bp Target Neutral has developed a toolkit to help event organisers take responsibility for these emissions and work to do something about them.


With this toolkit and carbon calculator, you can transform your event from being carbon intensive to carbon neutral through a combination of reducing and offsetting. The toolkit is designed to guide you through the process of calculating your event’s carbon footprint so that you can offset your emissions with bp Target Neutral. You will also find advice on how to reduce your emissions, more explanation about how offsetting works, and a look into why making events carbon neutral is so important.


This toolkit starts with tips on planning a carbon neutral event, followed by the step-by-step walk-through of the carbon calculator. Next, you’ll be shown how to offset the carbon footprint you have just calculated. The toolkit is rounded out by a series of tips on how to reduce your event’s carbon footprint, how to raise awareness of your carbon neutral event – including links to supporting materials from bp Target Neutral – and a short reflection on how we can all increase our efforts going forward.
