Try thinking about event sustainability as improving your overall event efficiency.

Measuring event outputs
So, outputs minus inputs of any event are a marker of how efficient that event is, in meeting its objectives. Continual improvements in overall event efficiency is an incredibly effective way of improving event sustainability. By improving efficiency in the inputs from travel, accommodation, freight, waste, energy, and f&b, event organisers can significantly reduce carbon emissions, lower waste generation and promote sustainable practices.
While implementing these measures may require additional effort, the benefits to society and the environment are huge. By making your event more sustainable, you’re setting an example for others to follow and contributing to a more sustainable future.
