The Events Industry Council (EIC) is pleased to announce that Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) is the first organisation in the world to achieve the Platinum Level certification under the latest 2022 Sustainable Events Standards (Venue) released in June 2022.

The EIC Sustainable Event Standards (SES) are specific standards for environmental and social responsibility within the events industry. Created by the EIC Sustainability and Social Impact Committee in partnership with industry professionals and leading sustainability practitioners, the requirements provide event planners and suppliers with prescriptive actions for producing and delivering sustainable events. The standard specifies performance criteria in the areas of organisational management, marketing, communications and engagement, climate action, water management, materials and circularity, supply chain management, diversity, equity and inclusion, accessibility, and social impact. The Venue standard is one of eight comprehensive standards for environmentally sustainable events.

RWS MICE & Corporate Sales Assistant Vice President Adeline Lim said, “The MICE industry has great potential in addressing environmental issues and in making a positive impact on society. With the sector set to have a strong recovery, this is an opportunity to not only entrench our sustainability practices, but to also communicate to our delegates, guests and visitors that RWS is committed to environmentally and socially responsible practices needed to support long-term sustainability in our industry. We are indeed honoured to be the first in the world to be certified according to EIC 2022 Sustainable Events Standards platinum level, it validates this commitment and energises us to take our efforts to the next level.”

Amy Calvert, EIC CEO, added, “The Events Industry Council congratulates Resorts World Sentosa on their Platinum Level Certification. This demonstrates a strong commitment to the environmental, regenerative and socially responsible practices that are needed to accelerate impact and support our sector now and into the future.”
