To raise the standards and enhance sustainable MICE events, Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) is on a journey to a 'Net Zero Events' goal, starting from 2023. The bureau has integrated the Bio-Circular-Green (BCG) economic model, which is a national agenda, aligning it with United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


TCEB aims to create awareness for carbon calculation and compensation while encouraging MICE entrepreneurs to adopt to carbon neutral MICE events. "Alongside, we have crafted a special support scheme for sustainable events, the main focus of which is the use of minimal resources, such as recyclable or locally sourced materials or products, use of electronic mode in event management, food waste prevention. We have also certified event venues with standards of sustainable development, environment, energy management, and many more, such as Thailand MICE Venue Standard (TMVS), Thailand Sustainable Event Management Standard (TSEMS)", TCEB states.

Furthermore, TCEB, in collaboration with Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (TGO), has created tools for organisers to host 'Carbon Neutral Events'. The key tool is the Carbon Footprint Calculator. "In years to come, TCEB will maintain and promote CO2 emission policy and initiatives. 'Net zero' is both a national agenda and global call and is in line with our master plan to make Thailand a sustainable MICE destination", TCEB adds.
