ICE to represent corporate organisers at COP26
ICE will join representatives from the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change), JMIC (Joint Industry Meetings Council) and the Scottish Event Campus at COP26, aimed at establishing a sustainability framework for the events industry.
ICE will be representing the voice of the corporate event organiser at the meeting, with founder and CEO Anita Howard, being joined by Stephanie DuBois, operations director, SAP, as well as five other representatives from the organisations’ community.
The aim of the meeting is to create a framework for the events industry to better measure, manage and set goals for more sustainable events.
The inclusion of the session also underlines the role the events industry can play in supporting the UNFCCC’s commitments around climate change.
Anita Howard, co-founder and CEO, ICE, said: “We are delighted to have been asked to represent the corporate market, and our community have really risen to the challenge to make themselves available for the meeting.
“For us, the voice of businesses and brands really needs to be heard and we are really pleased to have Stephanie DuBois on stage at this session, with our other colleagues in the corporate world supporting. There are so many good initiatives taking place across the industry right now, but we are really calling on everyone to support what we are doing at COP26."
She added: “We are working directly with the UNFCCC, we have great representation across the industry and we have a real chance to make a difference and fly a positive flag for our industry. This could be a real game changer.”
