We have had the pleasure of working with some visionary organisations who are truly changing their business models and operational practices to become more sustainable. Here are a few good case studies from some of our clients, to whom we provided a helping hand with strategic consulting, training, coaching, reporting and/or measurement services.
European Wind Energy Association
Anja and Luisa at EWEA have steadily implemented sustainable event management processes over the last 2 years and today are a great reference for what is possible with a little strategy and a lot of little actions. On the web you can see their 2010 event sustainability report.
Governments and CVBs
COP15 UN Climate Conference
The Danish did a fantastic job at working together to make the COP15 event a reference in sustainable event management. Its a real case study on how to develop strategy and stakeholder engagement. We helped to guide this journey and then capture this knowledge and learning by developing the Copenhagen Sustainable Meetings Protocol. The CSMP is a guide to helping organisations implement sustainability strategically into their meetings and events operations. It provides guidance for organisers, suppliers and destinations. Now it is being used by CVBs in Gothenburg and the Costa Del Sol.
UN Global Compact Leaders Summit 2010
Working with our colleagues in MCI Brussels, MCI helped the UNGC to develop event strategy which we then led through to creative production and event implementation following our Sustainable Event Management. The Summit was held in the Marriott Marquis who did a great job at supporting the sustainability vision. For the event sustainability report we incorporated aspect of the GRI G3 guidelines.

Estoril Congress Center
Starting from scratch the Estoril Congress Center just outside Lisbon has become a world leader in sustainability. We helped define the strategy which Pedro and his team have integrated into all operational and sales asècts of their business, winning numerous awards and significantly increasing their revenues and profits.
