Fully aware of the environmental and societal impacts of events, Nantes Saint-Nazaire Développement is committed to designing Wind for Goods in a sustainable way in order to minimise its negative impact on the environment and society. With this in mind, the event will once again be engaging in the “eco-committed event” certification process in partnership with REEVE. This reliable and proven process offers a clearly structured and phased methodology as well as access to feedback from many other organisers.
The Eco-Events Network (REEVE) is an organisation that supports all the players from the event industry in their efforts to achieve environmental sustainability. Its main objective is to foster the joint development and sharing of best practices between all those involved in the sector, in order to act collectively against climate change. The three-level certification process is based on fulfilling a number of eco-friendly commitments, selected from a list of a hundred or so intentions. In 2021, Wind for Goods was awarded the REEVE Level 1 certification label for fulfilling its eco-friendly commitments. For this second edition, the event is reviewing its requirements and plans to obtain the level 2 certification label in 2023. We intend to fulfil more than 50 commitments for Wind for Goods 2023.
Because meals are meant to bring pleasure, we offer a high-quality, well-balanced catering service that is good for your taste buds and the planet.
Reducing our waste starts with knowing what we throw away! Nantes Saint-Nazaire Développement, the organiser of Wind for Goods, is committed to understanding and quantifying food waste. Knowing what is in our bins will help us to reduce the amount of food we throw away.
Wind for Goods, the only international event dedicated to wind-powered maritime transport, is first and foremost committed to promoting solutions for a more sustainable economy. A perfect ground to further inform on all the individual and collective actions that can be implemented for environmental transition.
Wind for Goods has designed its scenography and the entire event with an eco-friendly approach, without however compromising on creativity.
Involving all generations Tying in with the theme of the event, we invite pupils and students from primary to higher education to take part in a dedicated meet-and-greet where they can interact with professionals from the maritime sector. A great opportunity to discover the solutions developed to address environmental issues.
Get your pencils ready!
