All events, big or small, use resources and have negative impacts on the environment. The planning, preparation and conducting of events tend to consume water, energy and materials, and produce waste and gas emissions. We understand that event organisers and venue managers would like to reduce their impacts on the environment and go green, but they are not sure how to start.
We have teamed up with ECO Singapore to produce the Green Events Guide. This Green Events Guide aims to provide a framework of principles and practical tips on how event and venue managers can start creating greener events by identifying and reducing the various environmental impacts in its process.
If you are organising an event or managing a venue for an event, we hope that you will take the first step in making the event green. The tips in the guide are not exhaustive but the more tips you implement, the greener is your event.
The following key areas are considered for a green event and are discussed in the Green Events Guide:
- Venue and Transport
- Food and Catering
- Energy and Water
- Materials and Waste

We are 3 guys who have a couple of free time to spare. Though our site name is sgCarpool, you might think that we are a car-only site. Well, that is not true. Our aim is to help people share whatever form of transportation they have. If you belong to one or more of the following groups, we would welcome you to join sgCarpool:
- Car owners
- Private bus companies
- Taxi drivers
- Van or mini-bus owners
- Motorcyclists (yes, a pillion helps too)
- People looking for others to share a cab
Be creative and have fun sharing your rides. You now have a choice and the choice is in your hands. Together we can solve our transport woes, be more self-reliant and at the same time do our part in helping the environment.

China is organising its first “No Car Day” this Saturday on Sep 22, in 108 cities to encourage drivers to leave their cars at home, take public transport, ride or walk. On Saturday from 7am to 7pm, there will be one or more roads in each city that are closed to cars. This is to raise public awareness about sustainable transportation options, saving energy and improving the environment and health. This event is the finale of the “Transport Week” held from 16 to 22 Sep. Read more about the events (in Chinese) from the Ministry of Construction website.
The Chinese government is aware of the problems of having too many cars and leading to traffic congestion, air pollution and health problems. They have been promoting green transportation, and building up public awareness and the infrastructure for sustainable transport options. However, it would be difficult to ask the Chinese people to give up their cars. Having a car remains a status of wealth and power.
