One last stat from the GMIC survey (if you will allow me) tells us that planners and suppliers have been incorporating green practices for many years now. Those who said it was just a trend, no longer have a case. When asked how long they had been planning or supplying green meeting services, GMIC members responded:
27% less than one year
41% 1-3 years
13% 3-5 years years
18% more than 5 years
These same professionals report that 68% of their organizations now have environmental or CSR policies.
