Eco-friendly event experts obtain ECOsmart agency award
An event agency with over 30 years’ experience is boosting its already distinctive eco plans even further by partnering with sustainability specialists Greengage and obtaining ECOsmart status.
Corporate event specialists Eventurous say there have been some big changes in the industry over the years, and being eco-conscious is now more important than ever.
Company owners - Joe and Joanna Garland - started their sustainability journey in 2007 and since then have saved enough carbon emissions to equate to 8,644 trees being planted.
From beekeeping on site to generating almost all of their own electricity through solar panels, and planting over 11,000 trees and a wildflower meadow, the couple have executed some remarkable sustainability initiatives at their Leicestershire premises.
Andrew Perolls, CEO at Greengage says: “Eventurous already has some great initiatives in place, which demonstrate that sustainability is a priority in their business. Their location and the work they are doing gives them a real advantage in the market from an event agency perspective. We are excited to support them further with their plans.”
Along with being home to Eventurous, the 150-acre Mythe Farm has award-winning wedding and corporate events venue Mythe Barn onsite, and Sheepy Meadows, a new outdoor tipi – both venues are also working with Greengage.
The duo says that although sustainability has been on their agenda for many years, the next step was to partner with Greengage to drive even more initiatives forward, particularly from the event delivery perspective.
Joe said: “Living in a rural community, the environment has always been a focus for us. We started our sustainability journey back in 2007 and it gives us great pleasure to see many others in the industry now doing the same. Being in this together, as a community of event professionals, sharing knowledge is vital in making a difference.”
Joanna added: “We walk the walk when it comes to sustainability and are proud to have a team of mindful people who care about the environment. Being awarded ECOsmart certification has given us the drive to push on to the next stage of our sustainability roadmap. 2023 will see the launch of our carbon calculator service, helping clients measure and reduce the carbon footprint of their corporate event and new event formats that allow any business, big or small, to give back to the environment and the community.”
