CSR approach

 

Since its creation, PremC has always had an ecological approach at the heart of its thinking. We are aware that the events sector is polluting and resource intensive. This is why we are committed to reducing the environmental impact of the events we produce as much as possible.

All our welcome bags and goodies are eco-responsible. We select products made of recycled materials, low fossil fuel consumption or made of organic materials. Moreover, we favour production in France or in Europe. For example, we offer a cardboard pen with a clip, a tip and a push button made of 100% biodegradable corn starch, a notepad made of recycled cardboard with a sewn-in binding, a wooden USB key, organic cotton bags, etc.
goodies
badges
We systematically post signs at various locations within the event spaces, inviting participants to hand in items they do not intend to reuse in the future, such as badge holders, lanyards or goodies, at the reception desk to give them a second life.
Similarly, if cups are used during coffee breaks, we provide markers so that participants can put their names on them and reuse their cups to reduce the amount of waste.
Signs are displayed to explain the process and to raise awareness of the issue.

One of the major criteria when selecting our service providers is that they have an eco-responsible approach. For caterers, for example, we work with those who favour short production chains, local producers or who respect the seasonality of fresh products.
Also, in order to avoid food waste as much as possible, we ask participants to confirm their presence at all meals in order to make the best adjustments. The food that is not consumed is, as far as possible, redistributed to associations and/or the homeless.

A greener event

Opting for a hybrid event, which will only bring together local participants at the venue, will allow you to greatly reduce your ecological impact, whether it be your carbon footprint or your waste production. Indeed, if we consider only the CO2 emissions produced by the plane journey of a participant travelling in economy class from Paris to an event in Berlin, his return journey would produce 389 kg of CO2, which corresponds to 21 days of gas heating for a 50 m2 flat or 3 million litres of tap water. Add up all the plane/train/car journeys you would save compared to a video conference which produces about 1.5 kg of CO2 per hour.
