Learn about us

Sustainable practices have long been a part of our daily lives. What we’ve realised over the years, however, is that sustainable living must go hand in hand with sustainable work. Having seen tons of plastic and food go to waste, we decided it’s time to rethink how we organise events and how we can reduce our environmental footprint in the process. After in-depth research and interviews with experts, we’ve found that we can replace virtually everything that goes into an event with a more environment-friendly option. And so we did.

Niki Gintner

It’s rare for someone to know what they want to do when they’re 18, but Niki chose event organising without a doubt when she went to college. She gathered experience from a client point of view for several years before joining our team to pursue what was most appealing to her even as an entrant: sustainable events. Thus, environmental protection has become a keystone not only in her private life but also at work.

How we make a difference

Eco Catering

Eco Catering

When organizing catering of our events, we are composing the menu with special care. Considering seasonality, choosing local ingredients and introducing vegetarian and vegan options to the guests is all part of planning a sustainable event catering service. We are aspired to be plastic-free, that’s why we use tableware made of porcelain, glass or metal. In order to minimize food waste, unspoiled dishes are sent to charity and other left-overs are composted after every HighVibes event.

Logistics

Logistics

Although we are thinking local and encourage guests to travel by public transport, there’s always a few things (or a few people) that has to be transported by car. To organize truly carbon neutral company events, with the help of our partners we calculate how much pollutant were emitted. By supporting MyForest’s afforestation or WWF’s habitat reconstruction project, we neutralize our emission. You can learn more about carbon-offsetting and the role of trees in this article.

Decorations

Decorations

Decoration and tailoring the visual of the event to reflect the brand image is one of the most important tasks when preparing a company event. Working with natural decoration, sustainable materials and rented furniture and equipment makes it possible to keep everything in circulation. Instead of producing branded goods, we use screens and other technologies for brand appearance. After the event, carpets are donated to pre-schools and natural decorations are composted.

Venues
