Barriers • No money• Artistic vision and lowest cost the priorities• Lack of time to research or implement new approaches,

products and relationships – especially challenging for temporary events and freelancers

• Concern over reliability of new technologies, materials or techniques

• Immature market for ‘green’ goods and services – not asked for nor promoted enough by suppliers

• Lack of professional training/development• Other industry regulation/agreements (eg. health, safety and

well-being) can work against environmental issues
