Tourism Noosa launches Sustainable Event Guide

The ‘50 Shades of Green’ guide is designed to help organisers in achieving sustainability objectives for their events.

Tourism Noosa has launched a toolkit for event organisers which aims to help strike a balance between economic prosperity, social responsibility, cultural preservation and the environment.

The ‘50 Shades of Green’ guide contains information about how to meet sustainability objectives when hosting events in Noosa and the Queensland Sunshine Coast.

The guide covers sustainability during various phases of event planning from before, during and after with each “Shade” of the toolkit giving tips and providing resources for actionable steps.

CEO of Tourism Noosa, Sharon Raguse, says the guide reaffirms the area’s commitment to sustainable event practices.

“This guide serves as a roadmap for all event organisers, offering practical strategies to minimise environmental impacts while maximising the positive contributions of their events to the community,” says Raguse.

Tourism Noosa’s Tourism Sustainability Manager, Juanita Terry-Bloomfield, says the aim is to provide event organisers with the best planning resources.

“We recognise that sustainability is an evolving journey,” says Terry-Bloomfield.

“By continually updating the guide, we empower organisers to stay ahead of the curve and implement cutting-edge sustainable practices in their events with the end goal to become zero emissions, zero waste and minimal community impact.”

Tourism Noosa stipulates that events sponsored by the organisation must demonstrate progress and commitment to being environmentally sustainable.

The guide is available here.
