Venue and event management company ASM Global has entered into a partnership with Honeycomb Strategies, a sustainability consulting firm specialising in hospitality, sports and event strategies.
The move ties in with ASM Global’s plans to place more of a focus on sustainability across its venues. As part of the deal, facility owners and operators will leverage Honeycomb Strategies’ experience and events-related sustainability practices to make informed decisions on major sustainability investments.
ASM Global’s corporate social responsibility platform, ASM Global Acts Foundation, already supports philanthropic and community-based endeavours and is guided by its sustainability and diversity objectives. According to ASM Global, the company boasts the largest portfolio of certified green venues.
ASM Global president and chief executive Ron Bension said: “Demand for cutting-edge sustainability innovations for our vast network of facilities has been steadily increasing. Honeycomb Strategies and their excellent leadership team are best in class.
“A trusted resource, they provide unique services and employ a proven process that will protect the best interests of our clients. Our partnership with Honeycomb Strategies will further ensure our place as the premier provider in live entertainment.”
Lindsay Arell, one of Honeycomb Strategies’ two principals, added: “This alliance is a perfect fit with both companies’ desire to help drive positive social and environmental change. It helps meet business and sustainability goals, both internally and for our clients and the communities in which we operate. As some of the largest venues in the world, this commitment is sure to have a significant impact.”
Honeycomb Strategies, a women-owned company, has recently worked with the Philadelphia Eagles, SoFi Stadium, Colorado Convention Center, Visit Denver, Greenbuild Conference and Expo, Vancouver Convention Center, Specialty Coffee Association, Coffee Expo, UUA General Assembly, and Snowflake Technology Summit.
