Going green has taken hold among conference planners. A green meeting seeks to minimize negative impact on the environment, addressing travel, energy, and water consumption; paper and ink consumption; sustainable menu planning; and food service. Not surprisingly, the movement even has its own organization - the Green Meeting Industry Council (GMIC). The Council is dedicated to transforming the meeting industry by bringing sustainability to every aspect of meetings and conferences.
