Are you making a planet-positive difference to your events business or the wider industry? If so, we want to celebrate you!
It’s now just two weeks to go till the entry deadline (31 May) for micebook and isla’s Power 50: Green Champions – the first industry initiative dedicated to shining the spotlight on individuals within the UK events industry who are devoting their time, passion and energy to making a positive impact on the planet.
You could be someone in the early stages of your career that has implemented a green initiative within your company, an event planner that created a stand-out sustainable event, a sustainability manager at a venue that has made serious strides in reducing carbon emissions or an MD or CEO who has spearheaded transformative environmental practices at a company level.
It’s free to enter, so however you have helped to implement change for the environment, we actively encourage you to get your nomination in.
By celebrating the changemaking achievements of 50 individuals across the industry, at all stages of their careers, we hope to share best practice and inspire others to make positive change. Entries will be judged by a panel of sustainability experts both within and outside the sector, with the final Power 50 announced at a special event in October and featured in a special digital publication.
New judges announced include Anita Majhu, head of Licensing and Sustainability lead for Consumer Products and Licensing at BBC Studios, Aarron McGurk operations manager at Chorus, Stephane Bazire, head of Business Sustainability & Partnerships at Silverstone, Chris Dooley, head of Social Impact at JCDecaux, and Miguel Veiga-Pestana, chief sustainability officer, Reckitt.
They join Christianne Beck, founder and event sustainability consultant at Worlds Better, Selina Donald, founder of The Bulb – Sustainability Consultancy for the Event and Creative Industry, Matt Grey, director, event:decision, which helps planners measure event sustainability, and Steve Lister, Sustainability Consultant to Global Brands & Retailers RETHINK Retail.
You can enter yourself or a colleague for consideration to be part of our Power 50 Green Champions, and we are happy to receive multiple entries from individuals within the same business. The deadline for entries is 31 May 2023.
