We are pleased to present you with the new version of the FEI Sustainability Handbook for Event Organisers.
Since we launched the first version of this handbook in 2014, a lot has happened and we have gained greater insights on Sustainability in general, as well as on how best to provide Event Organisers with a useful tool that contains content which can be actively implemented.
This is why, we have based our new handbook on the Global Reporting Initiative indicators, which are presented as practical initiatives in an easy to understand language. We have also regrouped the various initiatives under the different phases of an equestrian event’s timeline, ranging from Pre-planning (Event conceptualisation) to Post-event operations (Venue wrap-up).
You can discover all the functionalities, recommendations and ideas we propose in just one click by downloading the handbook right here.
We hope you will find this new FEI Sustainability Handbook comprehensible and easy to follow, and that it can accompany you in the successful and sustainable organisation of your event, every step of the way. Together, we can contribute to taking care of our planet Earth and who knows, it might be the only one with horses…
The first edition of the FEI Accessibility Handbook for Event Organisers is aimed at providing a systematic approach to making FEI Equestrian Events more accessible for para athletes and their support staff, spectators, media, volunteers and other stakeholders with disabilities. This includes ensuring all areas of the venue and facilities are fully accessible, providing dedicated and convenient car parking, providing disabled toilets at appropriate locations, ensuring information is readily available regarding accessible routes, services and facilities, and making sure volunteers are well briefed to provide information and answer questions.
While the FEI fully acknowledges that people’s functional abilities vary significantly and there is no one size fits all solution to enhancing accessibility at FEI Events, in producing this Handbook, it is hoped that the Organising Committees of all FEI Events will take the necessary measures to embed accessibility into all strands of Event planning and delivery.
