GLRPPR Sector Resource: Sustainable Events: Ideas for Incorporating Environmentally Friendly Practices into Meetings and Events

Title:
Sustainable Events: Ideas for Incorporating Environmentally Friendly Practices into Meetings and Events

Abstract:
This document provides a collection of environmental, social and economic sustainability practices that can be implemented by those involved in the planning or servicing the different components of a conference or event. It is intended as a source of ideas for those wanting to conduct "green" events for the first time, or just looking for additional ideas. While comprehensive in the number of sustainable practices included, this document does not describe the steps required to implement them, nor how to measure how sustainably the event performed. The reader is strongly encouraged to review the referenced guidelines and standards used for this document, as most provide detailed steps for implementation, and customize this document to their needs.
