Sustainability Clauses

Sustainable Planning – Don’ts and Dos – 
Look to the standards on: Sustainability Clauses

Don’t become the sustainability police at your event. Planners have enough to do without running around to check on sustainability compliance. This is not required by the standards.

Do make sure that all your contracts include sustainability clauses listing requirements for your venues and vendors. The sustainability standards that explain the performance requirements can be accessed at If you read the standards, you’ll know what is expected, so you can create clauses for your venues and suppliers to meet industry standards.
CIC making it easier: If you don’t have the time or expertise to create your own sustainability clauses, just use the ones in the SMPP® found at Use the CIC50 discount code to register.
