The term “green meetings” is a common one to most event planners. Most books, seminars, and webinars on the topic focus on the “why” of sustainable events and then a few go into the basic “how.” Very few have dug deeply into the structure of how to effectively implement a sustainable workflow and framework, in a cost effective way, that takes the meeting planner from the initial planning and contract phase through project completion, tracking, and reporting on the outcome.
The authors Nancy Zavada, Amy Spatrisano, and Shawna McKinley have spent years fine-tuning the processes necessary to create sustainable, cost effective meetings that go beyond the “doing the right thing” stance. They get to the heart of how to save time, money, and keep in line with sustainability practices throughout the event planning process. The book includes forms, checklists, and vendor requests to assist planners in making and measuring sustainable choices while simultaneously cutting costs.
