Checklist for a sustainable EPFL event

Sustainability is a priority at EPFL. The School has recently introduced an ambitious strategy in order to support the fight against climate change with the preparation of a bold Climate & Sustainability Action Plan. Across EPFL, efforts have been stepped up in recent years to incorporate sustainability into everything we do – including the events we hold.

At Mediacom Events (MEV), we’ve teamed up with EPFL’s Sustainability Unit and EPFL’s Catering and Shops Unit (RESCO) to develop this checklist and help you plan a sustainable event.

This checklist applies to all events held by EPFL groups – such as research labs and student associations – either on or off campus, as well as events that non-EPFL groups hold on an EPFL site.
