Meeting Strategies Worldwide has launched its latest website tool, Best Places to MeetGreen, providing two resources, the Best Places to MeetGreen Scorecard and Calculator, for helping meeting and event planners select the best green destination for their group.
The Scorecard feature ranks cities according to the green programmes implemented by the destination’s convention and visitor’s bureau, convention centre and hotels in the city’s conference package. Practices are third-party verified by Meeting Strategies and entered into a scoring rubric for each of the areas listed above. Visitors to the site may sort cities by total score, city name and city size.
The Calculator feature allows visitors to evaluate which potential destinations have lower estimated emissions footprints relative to their attendee travel.
