We are pleased to announce we are members of isla and are proud to be paving the way as the only staffing agency in the network today.
Isla is a UK not-for-profit, action-driven network, launched in September 2020 in response to the climate crisis. The membership includes over 75 leading agencies, brands, event suppliers and venues.
Working in collaboration with the isla team and industry peers to innovate and drive positive change around events sustainability, is a mission very close to our hearts and equally important for all of our client partners. Event staffing is fundamental to the solution in sustainable events and behaviour change starts with having the right talent representing brands.
“We have a long way to go when looking towards a sustainable future in the event industry. With a high percentage of non-sustainable behaviour being due to confusion or a lack of knowledge, isla’s mission is more important now than ever. I am dedicated to supporting the business to guide our industry, influence behaviours and reduce the knowledge gap that will result in far reaching positive impact.” Comments Carina Filek, Global Chief Operating Officer, Elevate.
Our involvement is central to the network, with our senior leadership recently appointed onto isla’s 21-22 Advisory board.
More news and views from Elevate and our approach to sustainability coming soon.
