Earlier this year we set out to formally put in place sustainability and environmental targets for our company.
We started at a relatively modest level and outlined plans to plant a tree for every time any of our staff members went to an event.
As we looked at the process and our place in the world, we started to evolve our thinking. Our team calculated what our carbon emissions were, we calculated how much energy we consume, how we travel and how we interact with the world. Our workforce works from home 80% of the time and we looked at home heating, energy use, cups of tea & coffee consumed as well as external travel to meetings and events. Having put that together, we then partnered with Ecologi to put in place some simple and impactful climate solutions. As a result of our process and partnership, we are delighted to say that Crystal Interactive is now carbon neutral for 2022. In fact, we have gone above that by both offsetting our carbon emissions and planting trees.

Now that we are carbon neutral, what next? While being carbon neutral is admirable, it does not necessarily change behaviors or lead to reduction of carbon emissions. There is plenty of more work to be done.

We hope the events industry can come together and join us on this journey. Let's also aim to create more sustainable events.
