Eric Wallinger, Director of Sustainability at MeetGreen, was recently interviewed about how we are implementing the SDGs and why this is an exciting time in our industry.
As hosted buyers, attendees, and exhibitors walk through the Sands Expo, IMEX America invites them to observe initiatives designed to help catalyze a healthier, thriving, more sustainable world, and then in turn imagine the impacts of incorporating them in their own event or organization.
The key to success in producing a more sustainable event is to enroll significant vendors. According to the Center for Sustainability Excellence, “Supply chain management is vital. Twenty percent of the suppliers will determine 80% of a company’s environmental impact.” This is true of events as well.
It’s not all “Kum Ba Yah around the Campfire” when the MeetGreen team holds its annual staff retreat. See how we stacked up using the My Event Footprint to calculate our impact.
