The International Centre introduces its green guide.
The International Centre, in Mississauga, Ont., has introduced its Sustainable Event Guide incorporating sustainable principles at all levels of an event’s organization and implementation.
Developed by Camille Camirand, CMP, the facility’s manager of corporate sustainability and client experience, the guide applies to events of all sizes and provides helpful tools and resources to greening events.
“By committing to a sustainable event, a meeting planner can expect to save money through conservation and reduction; create participation motivation, engagement and loyalty; raise awareness, attract employees, and much more,” says Camirand.
Event-related areas covered include communications and marketing; food and beverage; exhibits and exhibitors; accommodation; transportation; information technology; procurement; and event decorator/production.
Furthermore, the guide provides a sustainability checklist illustrating the steps that planners can take.
