This metric is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Sector Supplement - Event Organizers. It covers one of the reporting requirements of Indicator EO8 - 'Percentage of and access to food and beverage that meets the organizer's policies or local, national or international standards'.

Food and beverage is a critical aspect of the attendee and participant experience of an event. Through the provision of food and beverage, event organizers have an opportunity to clearly demonstrate their commitment to sustainability.

Report on environmental impacts of food and beverage packaging, consumables and tableware under Indicators G4-EN23 and G4-EN28.

Report on attendee and participant satisfaction with provision of food and beverage under Indicator G4-PR5.

Report on sourcing of food and beverage (as opposed to attendee and participant experience) under the Sourcing category.


To report the percentage of food and beverage offered references national and/or international standards - EO8-a:

Identify the organizers’ policies and definitions on food and beverages regarding their commitment to sustainability, with reference to national or international standards. For example: Ÿ

  • Vegetarian, meat, fish; Ÿ
  • Local; ŸOrganic; Ÿ
  • Seasonal; Ÿ
  • Cultural and religious needs; Ÿ
  • Dietary and nutritional needs; and Ÿ
  • Certified under recognized standards.

Then report the percentages of food and beverage offered that reference national and/or international standards as identified above.
