B Corporation

At Warwick Events, we are on a journey to join the B Corporation movement

alongside more than 4,000 companies in 153 industries from over 70 countries.

More than just a certification, B Corps have one unifying goal;

to use their business as a force for good and that’s exactly what we want to do.

The positive legacy of events?

Events are great. They bring people together for inspiration, collaboration and learning. They are explosions of creative activity. But not everything is positive.

Suppliers, stakeholders and participants all travel to a location, adding extra traffic and pollution to a local area. They consume energy and water and generate vast amounts of waste including single-use items for branding and builds that either head to recycling or landfill, but are rarely re-used. We need to ask ourselves – what positive legacy does our event leave in that location? And how can we change this?

Why are we becoming a certified B Corporation?

B Corporations care

They make decisions based on sustainability. They think about the impact their business has on their employees and the wider community and the implications their actions have on the world.

At Warwick Events we’re looking in depth at our daily business practices, seeing how we can perform at a higher level across all aspects of our work; in questioning our governance structures, examining our environmental footprint and looking at how we interact with our partner network of our local community, clients, event participants and employees.

By examining the purpose behind the elements of an event, you can make small changes that make a big difference. And we’re here to do that just that.

We’re on a mission to help everyone to meet responsibly.

The UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development

Everything we do is underpinned by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. These 17 interlinked goals have been set to tackle our world-wide issues. If everyone can work towards these we can build a “better and more sustainable future for all.” Are you with us?
