About the
Sustainable Event Alliance


The SEA was founded in 2009 by a group of events professionals who were specialising in event sustainability.


We realised there was no professional guild for those working in event sustainability that were setting the markers of what good practice looks like. So we banded together and built the Sustainable Event Alliance one event sustainability professional at a time. 

With sustainability in event management, thankfully, becoming more mainstream and of interest by the event sector, we are now a growing global affiliation of organisations, events, and individuals who are focusing on improving the sustainability outcomes of events.

Together we're committed to harnessing the powerful opportunity to advance and promote sustainable development through events. 

The SEA is a not for profit and established as an ‘Incorporated Association’, registered in NSW, Australia. It was incorporated in July 2010. Incorporation number: INC9893674. View SEA Constitution.

Our vision is to unite event professionals and together work towards increased attention to and knowledge of sustainability in event management, ultimately to reduce the impacts of events, to play their part in restoring and regenerating natural systems and in creating a fair and healthy world for all.

SEA Board

The SEA Board sets the strategic agenda for the organisation, and ensures transparent and ethical governance. The board members are the legal representatives of the SEA and ensure the implementation of the association's constitution, that all dealings are transparent, and that the financial control of the association meets the requirements of Incorporated Associations under the Associations Act of Australia.
