Green Events


With unique skills and experience as well as an extensive network of environmental consultants at our disposal, Black Bear Events is able to assess the environmental impact of your event and give you an honest assessment and recommendations - and usually save money at the same time as well as improving your events green credentials.

As well as work on environmental festivals (see clients list) our founder, Gary Essex has been involved in the following:

  • Co- editor: “The Green Guide to London 1997”
  • Editor: “The Oxford Green Guide” (2003)
  • Researcher, writer and campaigner on environmental impacts of transport, food and farming and energy

Black Bear Events can offer consultancy on the environmental impact of all areas of your event at all stages, from the early planning regarding site, infrastructure, marketing and publicity, to the running of the event itself, down to the final site clearance.

We can also supply many of the services ourselves, or though our extensive list of industry contacts.

Examples of what you can do:

  • Local sourcing of supplies, infrastructure and catering
  • Recycling of waste
  • Renewable energy for stages and venue power requirements
  • Integrated travel plan for your customers

Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
