What is the ALIA policy on waste management at events?
We will aim to produce minimal waste from our conference and events. We will reduce, reuse or recycle whenever possible. This includes eliminating the usage of single use plastics and other non-recyclable materials.
We commit to adopting technology to reduce paper usage. Websites, emails, social media, online registration, electronic abstract submission etc will be utilised to reduce printing. Recycling facilities will be provided at events to collect unwanted printed materials. Our suppliers and industry partners will be encouraged to also reduce the amount of paper generated at events.
Printed promotional material will be reduced and eliminated where possible by replacing with electronic communication. Materials handed out at conferences should be reusable, recyclable or environmentally sustainable. Where possible, presentations, papers etc will be provided electronically rather than in printed format. Delegates are able to print if necessary but encouraged to consider their need to print.
We will work with event venues to reduce food wastage, re-purpose leftovers wherever possible to charities and use locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients. Delegates are asked to consider which events they will attend to ensure that catering numbers and suppliers are accurately ordered to minimise excess.
We will discuss these policies with suppliers, industry partners and venues to encourage environmentally friendly practices in their participation in our events. We will commit to giving preference to suppliers who are able to support and implement these policies.
