GRI Event Organizer Sector Supplement and UFI template for sustainability reporting
) a non-profit organization based in Amsterdam pioneered the development of the world’s most widely used sustainability reporting Framework. It has developed a specific report for the event industry, with UFI as a Member of the “advisory group” for this project.
The first set of guidelines available here (https://www.globalreporting.org/resourcelibrary/EOSS-G3.1-Complete.pdf
) were launched in January 2012 and are applicable to the entire event industry.
In June 2013 UFI released a simplified version of the GRI sustainability reporting guidelines dedicated to the exhibition industry. This adaptation was developed by a working group of UFI’s Sustainable Development Committee - ADNEC (UAE), AUMA (Germany), BPA Worldwide (USA), Direct Energy Centre (Canada), Reed Exhibitions (UK) and UBM (Netherlands) - with the assistance of UFI education partner Positive Impact (UK).
The template is available here
