In sustainable project management, sustainability is integrated into the design, construction and long-term use of the structures being built. This chapter introduces the sustainable project management model, and applies it to the context of event management. Two cases are described. The first looks at sustainable practices in event design and management, and showcases how sustainability can be embedded within the traditional operational aspects of an event. The second outlines innovative approaches towards building sustainable facilities to host mega sports events, with the specific example of the Football World Cup 2022 in Qatar.
