Carbon Offsets – The Basics
What is a carbon offset? The “official” definition of a carbon offset (from Climate Trust) is, “carbon offsets are the process of reducing a ton of carbon dioxide emissions in another location for the emissions you cause in either your home, office, commute, travel or other activities that use energy and cause emissions.
Does the location of the meeting really make a difference? Absolutely! Choosing a destination that is conducive to the event’s purpose and takes into account the location of attendees is a first step in producing a successful event. It is also a first step in producing an earth-friendly meeting.
How Can I Save Time and Money?
If you’re a busy professional charged with planning a conference, you are probably wondering how best to produce a successful event while managing costs and using your time most efficiently. Most people assume that doing everything themselves is the easiest and cheapest way to go.
What is a Sustainable Meeting
Large or small, meetings bring people together to share information, generate ideas, and make business connections. When you think of being green or sustainable, managing waste is usually the first thing that comes to mind. A sustainable meeting or event goes beyond recycling or zero waste events.
