ASM Global has announced a partnership with Honeycomb Strategies, a consultant in sustainability for the hospitality, sports and event industries, to work on major sustainability investments with its current and potential future venues.
The move demonstrates ASM Global’s focus on sustainability in the event industry. ASM Global facility owners and operators will leverage Honeycomb Strategies’ sustainability best practices to make decisions on major investments. The company already boasts a large portfolio of certified green venues and has a social responsibility foundation, ASM Global Acts, to support philanthropic and community-based endeavors, guided by its sustainability and diversity objectives.
“Demand for cutting-edge sustainability innovations for our vast network of facilities has been steadily increasing,” ASM Global President and Chief Executive Officer Ron Bension said. “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.”
Honeycomb Strategies’ recent major sustainability programs and projects include 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.
“This alliance is a perfect fit with both companies’ desire to help drive positive social and environmental change,” said Lindsay Arell, one of Honeycomb Strategies’ two principals. “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’ other principal, Amanda Simons, said, “This partnership enables us to really move beyond just policy and procedure with our event clients. We’re looking forward to working with ASM Global to expand its sustainability roadmap that incorporates and addresses the full sustainability ‘E.C.C.O.’ system of engagement, communication, community and operation.”
