Sustainability

At CPI, we recognize the profound impact we have on those within our sphere – from the direct influence on event attendees to our broader footprint on the world we inhabit. Grounded in our three company pillars, our sustainability mission drives our commitment to fostering a more responsible Meetings and Events industry. We firmly believe in prioritizing sustainability and aligning with the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Through various initiatives aimed at reducing our environmental footprint and supporting the UN SDGs, we invite you to join us on this sustainable journey. Together, let’s forge a path towards a better world, one event at a time. Explore our initiatives and become an integral part of the change we wish to see.

People

We work with our staff and our clients to create work practices and events that have a positive impact on the lives of those involved and the environment in which they live.

Partnership

We recognise that our role as a PCO is a central cog between venues, suppliers, Associations and other industry partners. We work with our partners to ensure that sustainability is a key consideration in event design and implementation.

Innovation

We understand that the business tourism sector is still finding its feet in terms of sustainability. We recognise the need for innovative thought leadership that can help drive meaningful change.

CPI’s Sustainability Promise

CPI will ensure that every event that we organise has sustainability on the agenda and we will only work with venues and suppliers who share our vision for events that leave a lasting positive impact on our attendees and the world we live in together.
