The SEA has a large database of supplier categories. To become an endorsed supplier with the SEA, organisations are carefully scrutinised to assess what steps they are taking to be sustainable suppliers.
The first step is to identify what is best practice for sustainability performance in each industry sector.
Next we identify which certifications or ecolabel programs exist in the supplier cateogory in each country or internationally. Suppliers which meet their industry sectors accepted certification programs are listed.
If no certification exists or if a supplier is not certified but still has verifiable initiatives in place, that meet the accepted best practice for the category, the supplier is listed.
We look into what credentials each supplier has at an organisational level as well as the products and services they provide the event industry.
