Event sustainability body isla has surpassed 100 members following the addition of social media giant Twitter.

The brand joins the likes of Channel 4, Westfield London, and CNN International, as well as leading event agencies, venues and suppliers.

Kat Bednarczyk, senior business marketing manager, at Twitter said: “We’re really excited to join isla this year and work together to up-skill our team – having access to their training, guidance and tools will build our teams confidence and knowledge to deliver our event programmes sustainably.”

Launched in September 2020 with 12 founding members, isla unveiled proseed in June 2021, a free universal event sustainability framework to help organisations improve their event deliveries.

More than 600 event professionals have undertaken isla’s training modules and many more across the industry are implementing proseed.

Co-founder Anna Abdelnoor said: “2021 was a monumental year for climate change and with the return of live events there’s been a huge shift towards sustainability for event businesses across the sector.

“Our members are actively driving effective changes in their operations and events, this is proof that the industry is committed to building a better, more resilient future for events.”

This year, Isla will launch its carbon measurement software, Trace, which captures emission and waste data from live, hybrid and digital events. The body, which has grown to a team of eight, said it will continue to evolve its education programme to support the upskilling of event businesses.
