Sustainability in the event industry 

In-person events are fantastic, but at the same time, they can take a lot from the environment.

Yet, here's the good news!

Event organizers have become more environmentally aware, while attendees & sponsors are being drawn to organizations and events with a bold sustainability agenda.

Our goal is to help you create incredible events that are also beneficial to our planet.

Sustainability icon 9 Did you know that an in-person conference can produce up to 530 metric tons of CO2 emissions?

The future of events is green

Reforestation is unanimously recognized as one of the top solutions to the climate crisis.

Trees cool the planet by sequestering harmful CO2 emissions and releasing clean oxygen into the air.

But the benefits don't end here. 

Trees preserve biodiversity, filter the water we drink, and have a major social impact by creating jobs for over 1.6 billion people.

That's why we partnered up with One Tree Planted to combat deforestation - 1 meeting at a time!

Here's how...

Tree planting made easy

We want to make it easier than ever for you and your attendees to support reforestation, wherever you are in the world.

For every 10 meetings your attendees and sponsors schedule via Brella, 1 tree will be planted through our partner One Tree Planted. 

Yes, it's as simple as that! 

 

How we help organizers prioritize sustainability 

Become part of our sustainability program

Why trees?

Sustainability 1

Air

Trees sequester harmful pollutants and release clean oxygen for us to breathe.

Sustainability 2

Water 

Trees reduce the risk of natural disasters and filter the water removing pollutants harmful to the soil.

Sustainability 3

Biodiversity

Trees are home to hundreds of species of mammals, insects, fungi, and moss.  

Sustainability 4

Social impact

Trees provide plenty of job opportunities, food, timber to build homes and shelters, and wood to burn for cooking and heating. 

Sustainability 7

Health

Trees improve our health, reduce stress and anxiety, and provide us with shade from the sun. 

Sustainability 6

Climate

Trees cool the planet by absorbing greenhouse gases and releasing oxygen back into the atmosphere. 

"Brella shares our belief that reforestation is a vital step in healing our planet, and we are excited to be partnering with them to further our impact. Through this partnership, we will be able to plant more trees and benefit people, nature, and biodiversity.”

Why are trees so critical to the environment?
Reforestation is unanimously recognized by scientists as one of the top solutions to the climate crisis. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Trees also provide tremendous social impacts by creating jobs for over 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped nations, and supporting communities devastated by environmental damage.
Where do you plant trees?
We’re currently planting mangroves in South East Asia.
Why are mangroves so important to the ecosystem?
Mangroves grow where the ocean meets land and, thanks to their dense roots, protect the coastlines by filtering pollutants from the water and reducing coastal erosion. Moreover, mangroves protect vulnerable communities from rising sea levels and storm surges.
How do I know you’re actually planting the trees?

We make periodic donations to our partner One Tree Planted based on the number of meetings scheduled through Brella. One Tree Planted provides us with an official certificate of donation, and we update our progress on our official channels periodically.
