Driving Sustainable Temporary Structures

At Halo, we are passionate about protecting our planet and are dedicated to driving sustainability across all our projects. As we celebrate Earth Day, we are proud to share the steps forward we’ve taken to minimise our carbon footprint

Two years ago, we joined forces with Isla, an independent organisation that unites expertise from across the events sector to empower companies with the knowledge and tools needed to deliver sustainable events.

From the outset we apply circular economy principles to all our designs and the materials we use, choosing to build with permanent materials that can be demounted and re-used.  Central to all our designs is the use of Halo’s steel structure system, which is fabricated in the UK and with our servicing and regular maintenance, the components retain a minimum of a 10-year lifespan. The modular nature of the kit means it can be adapted for almost any project, reducing waste and environmental impact.

We have implemented a series of initiatives to reduce our environmental footprint across our operations. From transitioning to renewable energy sources and upgrading our fleet of vans, to using reusable bottles onsite and optimising haulage and scheduling.  These collective efforts, though small individually, add up to make a significant difference in our overall carbon footprint.

In 2023, we meticulously tracked the end-to-end carbon footprint of one of our flagship projects: delivering seven structures for the prestigious Wimbledon Tennis Championship. Utilising Isla’s Trace Platform, we identified opportunities for improvement, particularly in areas such as haulage and the use of electric plant machinery onsite.

Every piece of kit that was produced in 2023 will be used on the years and subsequent years build, making the production footprint in 2024 close to zero.

We are proud to partner with clients like Wimbledon and Formula E that care about the impact of the event delivery and work with us every step of the way to make small changes.  These partnerships exemplify the power of collective action in driving positive change.

Sustainability is a complex topic, but it’s one that we can address collectively. If you are unsure of where to begin, we encourage seeking expert support, such as Isla, who can provide guidance, training, and programs to kickstart your sustainability journey.  Even small changes can have a profound impact when we all commit to them together.
