In collaboration with Big Wave, Elevate has successfully planted an impressive 3100 trees, effectively offsetting a significant portion of the show's carbon footprint. These efforts mark a crucial milestone in the event's journey towards becoming a more environmentally sustainable.
One of the cornerstones of Elevate's commitment to sustainability is its dedication to reducing waste and resource consumption. With the implementation of a series of eco-conscious initiatives, the event organisers have set a shining example for others in the industry.
Among these initiatives, Elevate has significantly reduced non-essential carpet usage, ensuring that materials are utilised more efficiently without compromising the show's quality or visitor experience. Additionally, the event has embraced modern technology by transitioning to a user-friendly app for seamless communication and information dissemination. This move not only streamlines operations but also eliminates the need for printed materials, substantially reducing paper waste.
Moreover, Elevate has taken bold steps towards responsible waste management by adopting recyclable floorplans onsite. By using sustainable materials, the event fosters a circular economy and ensures that resources are repurposed rather than discarded.
Elevate's commitment to reusable infrastructure is evident through its choice to employ stands and theatre builds that can be utilised across multiple shows, reducing the demand for new construction and minimising environmental impact.
The organisers' dedication to sustainable transportation solutions is equally impressive, with the team actively car-sharing or using public transport for show travel. By encouraging eco-friendly commuting, Elevate aims to reduce carbon emissions associated with individual vehicle usage during the event.
Furthermore, Elevate has collaborated with the ExCeL venue to promote the use of refill water stations, effectively reducing the consumption of single-use plastic bottles. This initiative aligns with the event's broader mission to foster sustainable practices and minimise plastic waste.
With these steps, Elevate sets a new standard for sustainability within the industry, showcasing the positive outcomes that result from collective action and eco-conscious decision-making.
As Elevate continues to evolve and set new precedents for sustainability, the event organizers extend their gratitude to Big Wave for their integral role in planting 3100 trees, a significant step towards creating a greener and more sustainable future.
