“The zero-waste zero-emission RBF leads by example on how this can be accomplished.”
“As we engage the business community here at RBF to break new ground on their existing sustainability commitments, we need to ‘walk the talk’ ourselves in running the event.
We also want to get everyone thinking about how much each single plastic cup, plane ride, conference badge actually impacts the earth,” explains Tony Gourlay, CEO RBF, Global Initiatives.
Key impact issues that RBF faces include carbon emissions created by the high volume of international flights to Singapore for delegates, food waste, stage set production waste, delegates communication materials, catering as well as a high-energy demand for the event, they said.
