Sustainability, video, slides and survey

PLASA has just launched a survey on sustainability. The association aims to understand how companies across the live sector are tackling the important issue of sustainability and carbon reduction.

The survey was launched during the Member Business Forum on Sustainability and Carbon Reduction, which took place in London on 18 January 2024. Also at the forum, guest speakers and panellists shared their personal and professional insights. Mark Stevenson from CUR8 gave a keynote talk on “the future and what to do about it”. And Mark Vigneaux from the Carbon Disclosure Project explained the benefits of a CDP disclosure, which he described as “the gold standard of environmental reporting”.

The Forum also featured a panel of industry experts who shared how they are implementing carbon reduction plans in their respective companies, and how others can follow in their footsteps. These were Eman Martin-Vignerte from Robert Bosch Ltd and the CBI, Phoebe Currie from SLX, and Tom Harper from Unusual Rigging.

Even though there are no current legal requirements in the UK to implement such plans, PLASA recognises the importance of sustainability across the industry and the need for support. Therefore, the association is now conducting research to understand the current position of the industry. The data will help to inform the activities of the association, as well as future industry initiatives and membership support.

The sustainability survey closes on 14 February. Take the survey on sustainability:
