The BTA Planet Plan Conference On Sustainability

The BTA's first sustainability conference took place at the end of last year when both members and partners met to discuss the key issues we face as an industry.

We are determined that the BTA is not only talking about this subject, but that we also create and define output on issues both small and large.

To achieve this ambition we have organised a follow up sustainability conference on the 4th February 2020 to agree actions, targets and output.

As an association and an industry working in unison, we can tackle here and now and start making an impact.

We will spend the day discussing topics including:

  • Education
  • Data
  • Cross sector industry standards
  • Promoting sustainable events
  • Follow science-based targets
  • Investigating new technologies
  • Driving carbon budgeting
