2. Sustainability Guide

The Sustainability Guide is for Event Suppliers wishing to improve their environmental, social and economic performance. Written in 2022 by subject-matter experts, the Guide encourages event suppliers to take on responsibility and develop a consistent sustainability strategy for their business.

 

It is structured in two parts: The narrative part with Chapters 1-6 and the technical part with Annexes A - C. 

In the narrative, readers will find a thematic introduction followed by a discussion around ‘getting started’ recognising that the first step is very often the most difficult. The narrative continues, providing advice on defining and developing a strategy, action planning, and reporting and communication. Throughout the chapters of the narrative, readers will find many references to specific information available in the annexes, or will find practical recommendations highlighted in boxes in the same chapter.

 

In the technical part, readers will find checklists, templates, reference documentation, methodologies or other tools to support the implementation of the process. Annex A includes some useful checklists and templates and in Annex B, the Guide groups all relevant normative documents on sustainability for the event sector and defines terminologies. In Annex C sets out some key information about the ISO 20121 Standard and how to use it.

 

Finally, the reader finds a Glossary at the back of the Guide to aid understanding of the key terms and abbreviations used throughout.

 

The Sustainability Guide is available free of charge by writing an email to shop@ages.international to request a copy. Members will find a copy in the register "Sustainability Guide" in the login area.

 

3. Contract templates

AGES developed contract templates which are designed for rental services for large

international projects requiring temporary event infrastructure.

 

The templates address all industry specific aspects and provide a clear and fair share of responsibilities and obligations for the buyer and the seller. All relevant project specific information can be incorporated in the relevant annexes. The templates form a good basis for both parties to negotiate a suitable, project specific contract.
