Yesterday I attended the Portland (Oregon) City Discussion Group for the new Green Industry Standards. We reviewed the proposed standards in the categories of Meeting Venue, Destination, and Transportation. The proposed standards put forward by the committees were impressive! It must have taken considerable committee work to bring forward such well thought out, fair, practical, concise and measurable practices for review.
I was struck by the amount of passion and commitment professionals in our industry have to take on a project of this scope. My thanks to all of the committee members and city groups for their time, expertise and willingness to have the conversation about how we can make a difference!
