Green Your Meetings with Sustainable Planning: Sustainable Procurement


Sustainable Planning – Don’ts and Dos – 
Look to the standards on: Sustainable Procurement

Don’t underestimate your buyer’s power to improve sustainability at your events.

Do make sure that you always use EPP – Environmentally Preferable Purchasing policies.  The sustainability standards address this, and can be accessed at www.conventionindustry.org/StandardsPractices/APEXASTM/GettingAPEXASTM.aspx. If you read the standards, you’ll know what is expected, so you can meet industry standards for procurement.  

CIC making it easier:  If you want a complete EPP policy with how-to instructions, just log into the SMPP® found at www.SustainableMeetingPlanner.com. Use the CIC50 discount code to register.
