Incisive Media has opened another chapter on its journey to becoming a fully sustainable business by partnering with green energy provider Bulb for its office electricity requirements.

Jonathon Whiteley: “Care for the environment goes hand in hand with being a responsible employer, partner and customer.”

This, says the company, is the latest step in Incisive’s mission to become fully-sustainable, following its 2019 commitment to delivering a sustainable events agenda in partnership with Ecosphere+. The business has also replaced single-use plastic magazine wrappers with a recycled paper alternative, in partnership with its printers Stephens & George.

“A responsible approach to sustainability and the environment is essential to ensure the future growth of our business and the role that we play in the wider communities we serve,” said Incisive’s CEO Jonathon Whiteley.

“Care for the environment goes hand in hand with being a responsible employer, partner and customer. We encourage and empower everyone who works at Incisive Media to be aware of how the work we do affects the wider society.”

Bulb buys its energy from independent renewable generators across the UK. It is accredited by carbon offset projects verified by the Gold Standard, the Verified Carbon Standard or the UNFCCC’s Clean Development Mechanism.

Incisive Media works with Ecosphere+ to offset its events’ carbon footprint. As part of the €100 million impact investment Althelia Climate Fund, Ecosphere+ brings to market the largest portfolio of forest conservation projects in the world, generating verified carbon credits and measurable sustainable development impacts, says Incisive.

Incisive announced a pledge in 2019 that every event it organises will commit to working towards the International Standard ISO 20121 (Event Sustainability Management Systems). The business follows the guidance set out by the Sustainable Event Alliance (SEA) to deliver this strategy and champion the mission to create a genuinely-sustainable events business.
