We produce sustainable events

Event Lounge complies with legislation and environmental requirements in effect within the Brussels-Capital Region, but we hope to go further. We pay close attention to consumption of water and energy at our site, in order to ensure continuous improvement in our infrastructure and equipment and to be more effective. Within the context of our environmental policy, we have undertaken to reduce waste and to limit our impact on air, water and soils through an effective management system. We train our staff and inform our clients to ensure that they all contribute to protecting the environment.

To translate this policy into action, in a comprehensive and coherent way, the Event Lounge has decided to comply with the requirements and criteria established in the framework of the eco-label GREEN KEY, ECO-DYNAMIQUE and BRUSSELS HEALTH SAFETY.

9. Alpaca solutions is putting eco-friendly solutions in place to reduce the carbon footprint at events

The Event Lounge Brussels is putting an emphasis on making its events more eco-friendly. Holder of the 3-star Ecodynamic Organisation Label, The Event Lounge is continuing to implement its environmental action plan.

Today, we are unveiling our brand-new project: a partnership with Alpaca Solutions.
In an effort to reduce waste, our event spaces will be joining forces with an organisation that provides a tangible solution, collecting surplus food from our events. This non-profit is part of a partner ecosystem that can make best use of the waste we generate. Quite apart from the environmental benefits, these actions also have a positive social influence.
Alpaca provides a post-event report detailing each donation made. This report contains details of items collected, the number of portions donated, the amount of CO2 saved and, of course, the organisation that received the donation.

We’re proud of this partnership and of our investment in improving tomorrow’s world.

The Event Lounge undertakes to inform its staff and customers and involve them to contribute to the implementation of its environmental policy.
