Singapore’s Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) is the first organisation in the world to achieve the Platinum Level certification under the latest Events Industry Council (EIC) Sustainable Events Standards.
The EIC Sustainable Event Standards (SES) specify performance criteria in the areas of organisational management, marketing, communications and engagement, climate action, water management, materials and circularity, supply chain management, diversity, equity and inclusion, accessibility, and social impact. The Venue standard is one of eight comprehensive standards for environmentally sustainable events.
“The MICE industry has great potential in addressing environmental issues and in making a positive impact on society,” said Adeline Lim, RWS MICE & Corporate Sales Assistant Vice President.
“With the sector set to have a strong recovery, this is an opportunity to not only entrench our sustainability practices, but to also communicate to our delegates, guests and visitors that RWS is committed to environmentally and socially responsible practices needed to support long-term sustainability in our industry.”
Amy Calvert, EIC’s CEO, congratulated Resorts World Sentosa on their Platinum Level Certification.
“This demonstrates a strong commitment to the environmental, regenerative and socially responsible practices that are needed to accelerate impact and support our sector now and into the future,” she said.
