Tips for conference planners: Sustainable conferences and green meetings
Think of the future
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is playing an increasingly important role in the MICE sector.
Sustainability is the key word.
Any company that has declared itself environmentally friendly can hardly organise a conference or convention and ignore waste, CO2 etc. Nor should they, as green meetings are the latest trend.
Organisational policy should be set out as soon as possible, ideally by including the clause 'Sustainability is a priority' in all enquiries. Also pay attention to the certification held by venues and suppliers.
