When it comes to being environmentally conscious, it’s not an all-or-nothing proposition. Just like there are many shades of green, there are also many degrees of operating a company in a “green” manner. As organizations within the meetings and events industry have come together to launch initiatives to identify and promote environmentally responsible ways of executing events, the result has been a plethora of credentials and standards for vendors to meet.
To streamline the process of becoming greener, the APEX/ASTM Environmentally Sustainable Event Standards were created. This industry-specific program with third party verification and registry through the Green Meeting Industry Council helps planners and vendors with measurable protocols and accountability. Completing this major credentialing initiative has been the latest focus among venues and destinations, but it hasn’t reached all parts of the event industry.
To date, there are no specific green standards or credentials for destination management or third party planning companies. Just Right! Destination Management believes, however, that all of our events can create a positive impact on people and planet. When clients select us to plan and execute their events, they’re also selecting our personal high standard of “green.” Here’s our approach:
