Panel Discussion at an event at the Gherkin

Sustainable Breakfast Briefing

A morning breakfast briefing atop one of the most iconic buildings in the world, with industry leaders speaking on the direction of energy transition and the global Net-Zero goal.

The Challenge

To create and deliver a completely sustainable event in London focusing on the urgent need to turn the industry’s collective net-zero ambitions into reality, highlighting our client’s findings from their latest research paper.

The Approach

Zentive looked at every aspect of the event management process to ensure the event reduced carbon emissions and waste from the outset. During the event conception, sustainability was always a priority on the agenda.


Searcys at the Gherkin was chosen as the venue for the event due to the building’s sustainability credentials, iconic location and Searcys' sustainable catering options.

The Result

70+ senior stakeholder, government representatives and industry-focused media attended the event, held 40 floors above the capital.

We used a sustainable badging system which printed paper badges onsite producing less waste. All badges were collected at the end and recycled. Lanyards were produced using bamboo and collected to use for future events.

Digital screens and iPads were used for branding and signage. Zentive team used iPads and laptops to eliminate the need for any paper during the event.


A completely vegetarian breakfast was delivered for all attendees during a networking breakfast reception using reusable serveware.


All carbon emissions directly relating to the event were calculated, from site visits leading up to the event, to the travel and accommodation of all attendees, energy usage and F&B at the event. Once calculated, this was offset by investing in the Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve project which is protecting one of the most highly endangered ecosystems in the world.

"Just wanted to drop you a note to say a big thank you for being great partners on this event. It’s been a real pleasure and I hope we can work together again in the future."
