Mesure your event’s carbon footprint, impact and legacy

Planet Positive Event is the solution for

DISORGANISED REPORTING STANDARDS
Until the ESRS Standards were accepted in 2023, the reporting standards were vague and fractional, often only included in documents as recommendations or guidelines.
IMPRECISE CARBON FOOTPRINT CALCULATORS
Most carbon footprint calculators are generic and imprecise for credible calculations. Moreover, they do not include or measure the carbon footprint of all segments of an event (production).
TIME-CONSUMING DATA COLLECTION
Organisers who tried to gather data could not use suitable forms prepared in accordance with the GHG Protocol. That increased the probability of errors.
INCOMPLETE KNOWLEDGE BASE
Recommendations and guidelines for event organisers were prepared incompletely and imprecisely, although many handbooks exist. Valuable industry norms were often disregarded.
POOR VISUALISATION OF RESULTS
The graphic design of results and sustainability ratings fell short of the expectations and capabilities of modern visualisation tools.
NO EXTERNAL ASSESSMENT
Most tools do not include an external assessment by independent experts who would guarantee an event meets the criteria.
POOR USER EXPERIENCE
While preparing the tool, we analysed other systems that did not pay enough attention to the user experience. Almost no tool was integrated to connect all processes into a functioning system.
NOT MEASURING REGENERATIVE EFFECTS
The regenerative effects of events are crucial. The easiest way to measure them is by using SDG and ESG matrixes, which did not exist thus far.

How does it work?

USING SUSTAINABILITY CRITERIA:
96 obligatory and 286 recommended 

Event organisers will create a self-evaluation of their event based on selected criteria. An obligatory part of the evaluation is calculating carbon footprint with our in-house carbon footprint calculator.

  • CT1 – Mobility 26 (5+21)*
  • CT2 – Project management 20 (7+13)
  • CT3 – Communication 27 (7+20)
  • CT4 – Marketing 25 (6+19)
  • CT5 – Event venue 35 (9+26)
  • CT6 – Exhibitor equipment 16 (5+11)
  • CT7 – Purchasing and ordering products and services 20 (5+15)
  • CT8 – Food & beverages 20 (8+12)
  • CT9 – Multimedia equipment and production 26 (5+21)
  • CT10 – Hotel accommodation 30 (5+25)
  • CT11 – Social responsibility 24 (9-15)
  • CT12 – Natural environment 14 (6+8)
  • CT13 – Energy 18 (6+12)
  • CT14 – Waste 24 (7+17)
  • CT15 – Water 17 (6+11)
  • CT16 – Regenerative effects 40

*Out of the 16 criteria, 4 are mandatory: Mobility, Project management, Venue and Regenerative effects. 

Methodology

The ultimate Carbon Footprint Calculator

After testing over 120 carbon footprint calculators, we found something was always missing. So, we developed our own.

Our emission factors, crucial for calculating greenhouse gas emissions, are sourced from reliable data collections like ADEME, BEIS, DEFRA, EPA, IEA, IPCC, EcoInvent, EXIOBASE/USEEIO, EPD, scientific studies, and concrete supplier data. We ensure high accuracy with a stringent safety margin of 3.01 (on a scale of 1 to 5).

We’re proud to offer pioneering forms for calculating carbon footprints, the first of their kind globally.

Support Throughout All Phases:

  • CALC01: Project management and communication
  • CALC02: Energy
  • CALC03: Mobility
  • CALC04: Purchasing and ordering
  • CALC05: Venue and event production
  • CALC06: Waste and water
  • CALC07: Exhibition
  • CALC08: Catering
  • CALC09: Hotel accommodation

Our forms significantly simplify the time-consuming process of gathering data, complete with valuable tips.
