100 Years of Advancing Destinations

Green Meetings Happen in Green Cities: How Sustainable is the Destination You're Considering?

Date: March 20, 2014, 1:00pm

Webinar Details

Do you think about the meeting footprint you leave behind in the destination after your meeting? As a planner responsible for the impact made by large groups of people, you can actually contribute to a healthier planet by instituting a “sustainable meetings” policy if your organization doesn’t already have one. If you have adopted initiatives to reduce waste and conserve, have you been following the same basic practices for the last few years, or do you constantly look for new ways to broaden your sustainability impact?

There are in fact a myriad of indicators that can help planners and event organizers identify a sustainable or “green” destination when planning their next meeting. This webinar will guide you through some basic “best practices” related to city infrastructure and environmental and social programs.

In this webinar we will explore:

  • Assessing Accessibility and Infrastructure in the Destination
  • City, Convention Center and Hotel Environmental Initiatives and Social Sustainability Initiatives
  • Giving you best practices, resources and a glossary of terms
