What You'll Learn

  • Gain a deeper understanding of how to imbed sustainability in your planning processes.

  • Use tools for success around several key areas of event, including carbon emissions, food and beverage, single-use items reduction, supplier engagement and social impact.
  •  Align your event sustainability goals with the overarching goals of your organization or clients.


The meeting industry's focus on sustainability is changing. As planners, part of that means being able to answer questions from chief sustainability officers and executive-level stakeholder(s) and clients, particularly those whose focus is organizational support of UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting.

The industry has been talking about sustainability in events for years and many of us have implemented small changes, but now we have to go further and redefine how we plan.

MPI's newest micro-certificate dives into specifics around sustainability, government regulations, community impact, food & beverage, carbon offsets and tracking and supply chain engagement. Get the boost you need to start implementing real change in your planning process.
