We are Creating Environments.

Planning and Consulting for Sustainability in Events.


Who we are.

Award winning event producer, Suzanne Morrell, MBA, SEPC, founder of STM|enterprises, LLC | Creating Environments, and the D.C. Event Food Waste Coalition, has been creating experiential events globally and online for over three decades. She is a member of the Board of Directors and Leadership Team of the Sustainable Event Alliance, a global guild for sustainable event professionals.

Suzanne has worked behind the scenes on some of the world’s most high-profile events, and range from government meetings to academic programs; destination programs to and social events; advocacy programs to concerts. Suzanne advises event teams on sustainable design, food and beverage safety, sustainable venue and site selection, virtual event production, staff training, waste management and sustainable materials and suppliers.

Throughout the United States and around the world, Suzanne is a strong voice in the event industry to forever change the way events are planned by systematically incorporating sustainability into event practices.  The Meetings and Events Industry by its nature, creates temporary experiences in an extremely wasteful way, with extremely siloed perspectives and goals.  As a Mentor in the Climate Reality Leadership Corps, she hopes to amplify her platform to forever change the way events are produced to systemize sustainability and net zero waste and carbon usage.

Favorite kitchen item: Vintage Dansk pealla pan-so versatile...and immersion blender to make smoothies...and French press coffee pot-only decaf though!
