Event sustainability guidelines

Every year, Brisbane City Council helps to deliver markets, festivals and events which enrich Brisbane's cultural and social life, attract visitors, businesses and new residents.

Council has developed guidelines to help event organisers incorporate sustainable principles into their events. Every event is different and each presents different opportunities for improved sustainability. It won’t all be achieved in one go, but every change is a step in the right direction.


Use these guidelines to enhance the environmental outcomes for your event.
