Whether you are planning a small meeting, medium-sized workshop or large conference, there are many things you can do to make it a "green" event. LEAP environmental services provides the resources to ensure that all aspects of your event — including accommodations, event space, food services, transportation issues and the provision of materials — are approached from the perspective of sustainability.
So you have decided to plan a green meeting. What does this mean? Where should you start? How do you reconcile the desire to be green with the need to save some green?
As defined by the Green Meeting Industry Council, "a green meeting incorporates environmental considerations throughout all stages of the meeting in order to minimize the negative impact on the environment."
If you are unfamiliar with green planning techniques, you might be under the impression that hosting an environmentally friendly event will be more trouble than it is worth. In actuality, planning green meetings is both simple and cost effective.
All journeys start with a single step.
