1.3 Plan of action

Make a plan of action on the basis of the environmental mapping and your chosen measures. This will provide a good overview of what must be done, when and by whom.

A separate plan of action can be made for every work group within the event, or you may choose to make a separate plan for each environmental area. It is up to you to decide on the most practical solution.

The plan of action must contain:

  • Concrete measures – what is to be done
  • Manager – the person in charge
  • Deadline – when the measure is to be accomplished
  • Potential expenditure and gain

Example of plan of action, waste handling:

Measure Area/Section Investment/Resource requirement Person in charge Deadline Possible gain
