Green Fern Events (GFE) is one of a small number of event management companies in the US and the world that focus exclusively on sustainable events. We are considered pioneers in this growing field and recognized locally and nationally for our environmental leadership.
Based in Austin, Texas, GFE provides a variety of green event services to help our clients minimize the negative environmental impact of their events as well as to report on their sustainability initiatives. In addition, we provide turnkey solutions for your waste management needs, making recycling/composting for your events easy and fun!
Our full list of services brings three key components together to produce extraordinary green events.
Event Sustainability Services:
Sustainability Consulting/Sustainable Event Management (SEM) Planning
GFE helps its clients develop and implement SEM plans for large conferences and events. SEM is now a major part of companies’ Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives as is sustainability reporting.
Zero Waste Event Management
To date, GFE has helped our clients divert over 12 tons of waste from landfills as a result of our strategic zero waste planning. Anything over 90% from a landfill is considered zero waste.
What gets measured gets managed. GFE measures its success in this field by providing environmental analysis/reports to our clients post-event. This is not only is this socially and environmentally responsible, it is great PR for any company.
