Sustainability Strategy How are we contributing to the SDG’s?

The below graphics represent one or more of the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are “a to-do list for people and planet.” You can read more about all the SDGs here.

Here’s how we are planning to use these as guides for our own sustainable development.

Better Materials & Minimising Waste

As this is one of the biggest sustainability challenges in the events industry, it’s the one we’ve made the most effort with over the last few years. These actions are a great start and have put us on track to be operating as a circular business* by 2030.

We design out waste.

We’ll continue to divert 100% of our waste from landfills and reduce waste to energy. Our goal is to operate as a circular business by 2030 (more on this later).

We train and encourage our team to play their part.

We promise to work with our supply chain to understand the lifecycle of materials so that we can always choose the most sustainable options.

Increased Transparency & Annual Reporting

We keep track of our carbon footprint. Monitoring, recording, regularly reviewing, and reporting data on the amount of carbon dioxide we’re responsible for emitting into the Earth’s atmosphere can tell us where we’re making progress and which areas need to be improved. It also shows all our stakeholders that we’re genuinely ‘walking the talk’.

We promise to openly share our progress in sustainability on an annual basis from 2024.

We belong to industry networks that encourage honesty and transparency.

Contributing to People & Community

Our people and communities are central to Decordia’s success. So, we put a lot of time and effort into showing them that we care about their wellbeing and the wellbeing of their environment, here’s how:

We’ll keep on investing in our community through charitable.

Our management team will continue contributing to our community through local outreach and mentoring work.

We’ll maintain our extensive program of opportunities for employment and skills development with local and nationwide universities, as well as continuously finding ways to invite people on our doorstep in Salford to offer event opportunities to our local community.

We promise to give all sta access to fully accredited carbon literacy training.

Responsible Energy & Transport Use

These are difficult areas for most businesses to tackle in terms of sustainability, even more so in live events. That said, we’ve started making some headway on reducing our energy consumption and transport emissions with the following actions:

We’re measuring our energy consumption. Whether we’re working at the office or on-site at an event, we keep a record of our energy use so that we can get a clearer picture of where further reductions should be made.

We promise to reduce the amount of carbon we release into the atmosphere (AKA our carbon footprint) by 40% by 2030.

We commit to achieving net zero before 2050 or as soon as possible before then.
