The Danish Egyptian Dialogue Initiative (DEDI) is happy to announce the launch of DEDI Green Checklist.
The checklist was developed by DEDI in collaboration with Greenish. It serves as a guideline for individuals and organizations to accelerate the transition to sustainability by building their capacity on setting sustainability strategies and making their events more eco-friendly.
This checklist is made to help environmentally conscious organizations and individuals mitigate their events’ carbon emissions and/or achieve their sustainability or carbon goals. The checklist will help its users to organize zero-waste and carbon-neutral events, as it suggests eco-friendly solutions for food, supplies, venues, transportation, giveaways, and waste management. The Checklist’s primary focus is minimizing waste, water and energy consumption using recyclable and reusable materials and mitigating the event emitted carbon dioxide.
The checklist was made through benchmarking international green events measures and organizations including Greenbiz and Reuters events. It is also in line with Greenish guidelines in hosting or planning green events. Furthermore, the checklist was discussed with local sustainability enthusiasts to ensure its relevance to the event management ecosystem in Egypt.
