We’re thrilled to unveil our Power 50 Green Champions – a list of 50 inspiring #eventprofs who are devoting their time and energy to making a positive impact on the planet.
The Power 50 Green Champions, created by micebook in partnership with isla, was officially revealed at an educational and celebratory launch event at Barbican this week (10 October).
The events industry is filled with proactive people who are bridging the gap between intention and action on environmental issues, and the Power 50 Green Champions is the first initiative dedicated to showcasing the changemaking achievements and success stories of these individuals.
Entries for the Power 50 were invited from across the industry, with individuals being self-nominated or nominated by their peers and judged and scored by a panel of sustainability experts on their ambitions, actions and impacts. The 50 who scored the highest made it into the Power 50 Green Champions.
This Power 50 is not a ranking, or by any means a definitive list of green champions in our industry, but an opportunity to recognise just some of the people that are making important strides to drive sustainable change in the events industry.
These inspirational Green Champions represent a true cross-sector of the industry, with individuals from corporates, agencies, venues and event industry suppliers featured – and ranging from those who have recently started their careers in the events sector, up to experienced senior leaders who are driving change from the top.
The list includes individuals from companies including Informa, Worlds Better, The Bulb, Silverstone, Identity, DRPG, Top Banana, Cheerful Twentyfirst, Chorus, Jimmy Garcia Catering, SLX, Event Cycle, Print Hub Global and many more.
The Power 50 Green Champions launch event kicked off with an afternoon of thought-provoking content sessions, where select individuals from the final Power 50 shared their experiences and successes, workshop sessions, and a keynote by Chris Hines MBE, in partnership with Speakers Corner. We’re be sharing more photos and key takeaways from the event over the next week.
Thanks to the isla team for partnering with us on this initiative, to our judges for giving their time and expertise, to 15Hatfields for hosting our judging day and to Barbican for hosting our Power 50 Green Champions launch event. And congratulations to all our Power 50 Green Champions, and everyone that entered!
