Event Greening Forum Launches Eco-friendly Supplier Database

Event Africa Contributor 11/06/2018 Industry Association News

The Event Greening Forum (EGF) has launched its supplier database: an online directory of venues, products and services for events, all of which demonstrate environmentally and/or socially responsible practices.

Greg McManus, EGF chairperson, says: “One of the most effective ways to make your event more sustainable is through eco-procurement, sourcing products and services that have already done a lot of work to be more sustainable than the alternatives on the market.”

The searchable database, www.greendatabase.co.za, hosts listings from across South Africa, covering a range of categories including: carbon offset suppliers; environmental consultants; event organisers; venues and accommodation; caterers; décor companies; printing and design services; responsible waste, energy and water solutions; transport; and gifting.

Any business is welcome to add their listing, although submissions will undergo a basic vetting process to ensure they meet the EGF criteria.
