“With the restructured service portfolio of NIYU.sustainability, we want to embrace the opportunities of sustainable transformation and see ourselves as a partner in the holistic transformation process that the entire live communications industry is facing,” explains Jonas Krapf, Chief Sustainability Officer and Green Consultant. “The symbiosis of the know-how of the engineering and planning office and the holistic approach allows us, as dual specialists, to offer individual solutions and thus noticeably improve sustainability performance,” adds Niko Hocke, Managing Director of the NIYU event production group.

The know-how was consistently built up through certified courses at the international Institute for Sustainable Events and the Green Consultant certification. Through qualification processes lasting several months, the methodological and technical competence was not only expanded for all trades of events, but also for the areas of film and TV. The well-founded training thus allows a holistic view of the industry-specific processes. The dimensions of ecology, economy and social issues are taken into account in every step of the process. With the Sustainability Manager Lucas Gröbel, the department gains further personnel support.

The concrete services of NIYU.sustainability include strategic and conceptual consulting as well as project-specific planning services. In addition, accompanying measures such as a status quo analysis or a detailed reporting system are designed to ensure the traceability of the sustainability performance. Impulse workshop as well as gap and relevance analyses to incentivise stakeholders complete the portfolio. The detailed balancing of event-specific CO2e emissions and advice on certified compensation projects complete the project-related work.

As a verified member of Leaders for Climate Action, NIYU is also taking its own social responsibility and implementing the next concrete steps. Based on an individually developed framework, including the “17 Sustainable Development Goals” of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda, NIYU has set itself the goal of achieving a reduction of 65% in CO2e by 2030. With its promise to the international cooperation Positive Impact Events, NIYU also underlines its ambitions to operate climate-neutral by 2040. With its commitment to the Sustainable Event Alliance, NIYU is contributing to the international sustainability agenda.
