Sequoia Productions is committed to reducing our ecological footprint and strives to have a minimal impact on the global and local environment. Greening our events is critically important to ensure sustainability development in event management by making responsible decisions during planning, organization and implementation of an event. We work to find appropriate ways to repurpose, reuse, donate or recycle as much of the event elements as possible and donate to local organizations when possible. Below are some ways we are greening our events.
- Engage in energy saving practices and use energy efficient equipment in office work related to the event (i.e. Energy Star products, turn off electronics, etc.)
- Select venues and vendors with green policies and practices
- Using eco-friendly and locally manufactured products for all event needs
- Choosing venues with an in-house recycling program or bring in a recycling dumpster vendor
- Reduce or eliminate paper use with electronic handouts, web-based invites, online event registration, etc.
- Double-sided printing for all collateral and meeting related materials when printing is necessary
- Utilize natural light, energy efficient LED lights and low voltage fixtures throughout the event. LEDs use only 15% of the energy a standard halogen light uses, and provide up to 85% more light output.
- Biodiesel generators reducing emissions and not using fossil fuels
- Repurpose all decor hardware and elements, recycle or donate to Habitat for Humanity
- Recycle carpet into carpet padding or donate to Habitat for Humanity
- Rent real china, silverware and glassware or recyclable service ware for all food and beverages
- Source sustainable menu ingredients from local farms and markets
- Compost all florals after the event to create new rich soil
- Recycle all cardboard shipping boxes and material
- Recycle all glass, plastic and paper products
