15 OctGreen Office Infusion – Issue 4: Events
Hosting events through your organization more sustainably– whether a staff meeting, a large working group session, or a conference– is a chance to not only limit and mitigate any negative impacts of the event on the environment (i.e. fuel consumption via public transit), but is also the chance to support local economic and social development (hello Detroit Bus Company!) . With the right amount of planning, of course, a ‘green’ event can save you and your organization time and money– but have you considered how a more resource sensitive event planning process could also improve the experience of your event participants, create positive change beyond the boundaries of your event, and help the environment (and the economy), all while positioning you and your organization as leaders? Regardless of the size of your guest list, we hope that this edition of the Infusion has something to offer your event– enjoy!
