SO, WHY HOLD A GREEN EVENT?
It reduces costs and saves time
Something as simple as reducing paper and using electronic documentation avoids the costs and time associated with purchasing, printing and distributing event collateral. Several small changes can lead to significant overall cost savings for your event.
It saves resources and reduces waste
Eliminating or reducing the use of items such as disposable glass, dishware, napkins and brochures saves paper and reduces landfill waste.
It fosters the local economy
A green event adds value to the local economy and is a unique opportunity to showcase local selections. Opting for locally grown, seasonal products and local suppliers foster the community’s economic and social development.
It enhances brands and public image
A green event says a lot about the values of your organization. It signals that your organization is aware of environmental impacts and is willing to take action. It also shows that your organization is willing to meet the increasing demand for sustainable options.
It educates and motivates, and encourages market transformation
Holding a green event may encourage others to implement these same technologies and practices in their own homes and businesses, and it provides an opportunity to educate participants, organizers and suppliers about the benefits of green events, emphasizing the need for a new, responsible attitude.
