MeetGreen Offers New Sustainability Tool
MeetGreen® is pleased to add a new addition to our suite of sustainable event tools! MeetGreen® clients can now access Sustainable Event Solutions' Sustainable Event Management System (SEMS) and Policy Wizard through meetgreen.com specifically at meetgreen.com/meetgreen-tools/iso-20121-tools/.
SEMS provides an online tool to create a complete sustainable event operating system, helping organizers improve their events by moving closer to compliance with standards such as ISO 20121. It is customizable, enabling you to adjust the scope of your system to your company, event or series of events. It also identifies key components to include in your system in a step by step way. This includes a wizard that allows you to write your own sustainability policy using an online template. And for those who want to go even farther, SEMS enables auditing and certification of your sustainable event.
MeetGreen® has become a leading source for event professionals seeking to integrate sustainability into their meeting and conference plans. In addition to a new affiliation with SEMS, MeetGreen® offers:
- A Simple Steps to Green Meetings book series.
- Procurement Resource Kit of vendor surveys, contract language and ready-made best practice checklists.
- Best Places to MeetGreen® which helps planners select the greenest locations for their meetings.
- MeetGreen® Calculator, which can be considered a stepping stone to SEMS, that measures and compares conferences according to their environmental performance.
Based in the U.S.A., MeetGreen® works with a diverse sector of organizations to integrate sustainable practices into existing systems and produce conferences and events that deliver targeted business results. Going far beyond composting and recycling, MeetGreen® examines the process, some of which is detailed in their two books: Simple Steps to Green Meetings and Events, and Saving Green by Going Green. MeetGreen® has been recognized for their pioneering efforts in sustainability with titles, awards, and worldwide media coverage. MeetGreen® has offices in Portland, Oregon, New York, N.Y., Washington D.C., Vancouver, British Columbia and Stockholm, Sweden.
