ASM Global and Honeycomb Strategies, a leading consultant in sustainability for the hospitality, sports and event industries, announced today a partnership to support and improve the facility management giant’s sustainability efforts across its global portfolio of some 350 venues, from stadiums to local convention centers.
Sustainability has become a major consideration in venue management and operations, as well as for artists and fans who have increasingly come to expect the highest levels of proactivity when it comes to protecting the climate. Honeycomb Strategies, a woman-owned consultancy, brings extensive experience and a comprehensive understanding of events-related best practices in the sustainability field.
Honeycomb Strategies will work closely with ASM Global’s corporate social responsibility platform, ASM Global Acts Foundation, which supports philanthropic and community-based endeavors, guided by its sustainability and diversity objectives.
Among Honeycomb Strategies clients are the NFL’s 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.
ASM Global President and CEO 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.”
Honeycomb Strategies co-principal Amanda Simons said, “This partnership enables us to really move beyond just policy and procedure with our event clients. We can collaborate seamlessly with both stakeholder groups to make meaningful change and long-lasting positive impacts. 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.”
Lindsay Arell, Honeycomb Strategies’ other co-principal 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.”O
