It seems that everywhere you turn, stakeholders are asking about your green efforts. Media outlets have latched onto green stories and the onus is on each of us to ramp up our green efforts as quickly as possible. So, how does a company demonstrate its commitment to the environment without giving the appearance of greenwashing? It can be overwhelming to look at all the issues around greening events. Where do you begin? The good news is that it is easier than ever before to make events greener. All it takes is a little commitment and forward thinking to jumpstart your efforts.

In this webinar you'll have the opportunity to hear from three experts in different areas in the events industry. Drawing on the latest industry trends as well as examples of their own work, you'll take away firsthand knowledge and ideas that you can implement in your own company.

Webinar attendees will learn a variety of practical, concrete techniques to help make events green. We'll provide listeners with ways to communicate to both internal management and vendors that being environmentally sound is core to your organization's success. We'll take a critical look at the Boston College Center's events and demonstrate what is truly important for an event's success and what can be altered with minimal impact. We will also provide ideas for linking your environmental efforts to your broader employee engagement and corporate citizenship efforts.

Challenges addressed:

    - Cost associated with greening your events
    - How do you "retrofit" an existing event
    - What time or additional staff you need
    - Understanding how green is vital to your business
    - Getting buy-in from the full range of stakeholders including senior management, attendees, vendors and partners
