Sustainability Initiatives –

Environmental Quality at SETAC Events

“SETAC’s mission is to support and facilitate the development of principles and practices for the protection, enhancement and management of sustainable environmental quality and ecosystem integrity.”

With this in mind, we are convinced that not only we should strive towards organising sustainable events, but that SETAC, as organiser of large events, can play a role in having more sustainable products and initiatives in the meeting industry. Although the influence is sometimes limited, we think that every step is important.

A sustainable event balances environmental, social and economic responsibilities. Our objective is to organise events in a way that minimises potential impact on the environment.

Below you will find a list of initiatives that are in place for the Helsinki meeting and for future events.
