Welcome to the Sustainable Event Alliance
A global affiliation of organisations, events and individuals who are focusing on improving the sustainability outcomes of events.
Together we’re committed to harnessing the powerful opportunity to advance and promote sustainable development through events.
The SEA offers event professionals a pathway to understanding sustainability issues in event planning and delivery.
We’re a professional guild for individuals. We’re an industry association for events and event organisations. And we’re a network of like-minded organisations around the world all working in this space.
The SEA website has a knowledge bank of resources and how-to guides, brings suppliers and event planners together through a growing database of sustainable solutions providers, and offers a portal for networking and discussion around sustainable event management issues.
We set competencies that event industry professionals should aim to achieve in event sustainability knowledge and also let the industry know what they should expect from those who are advising, training or auditing them in event sustainability.
SEA Accredited Professionals are recognised for their up-to-date knowledge and experience within the field of sustainability in event management. Read more
