Why work with Positive Impact Events?
1. We have strategic relationships with the United Nations
Since 2016 Positive Impact have created Memorandums Of Understandings, partnerships and collaborations with a number of United Nations Bodies and Sustainability experts, which is very rare. This means we can co create and collaborate on areas of interest.
2. We have a global community that we can create calls to action with.
We are a network and community who collaborate to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our CEO, Fiona Pelham, is a known expert, a member of the UN Environment Expert panel, chaired ISO 20121, led the creation of GRI EOSS and has been awarded an honorary doctorate for services to sustainability in the event industry.
3. We are a facilitator of positive disruption.
Using design thinking approach, we produce materials to help the event industry be sustainable. For example the creation of a plastic app which provides ideas on addressing plastic use but perhaps more importantly, we gather global data to understand the role of plastic within the event industry. https://www.positiveimpactevents.com/app
4. We trial and seek to improve materials with the event community.
We act quickly rather than perfectly to demonstrate how event professionals are part of the solution to creating a world that works for everyone. Our work protects the reputation of events and give our industry a way to demonstrate we are trying to change. As a result, we match our sponsorship income with tangible outcomes which will make a difference in the event industry.
