A new free online tool to help event organisers, venues and suppliers create environmental action plans has been developed by WRAP.
By using the Resource Management Plan online tool organisers can identify opportunities to work with their supply chain to reuse items and reduce waste by forecasting material needs. Waste arisings during the event can be captured alongside recycling opportunities and cost saving benefits. The tool provides feedback and reports to allow users to reduce materials and waste management costs in future years.
The tool can help meet the requirements and demonstrate compliance with BS8901, the British Standard for Sustainability Management Systems for Events, and has been granted the London 2012 Inspire mark.
