 What’s the Score in Greening Your Supply Chain?

August 14, 2012 at 9am PST

Did you know that up to 80% of an event’s environmental footprint can be found within the supply chain?

This webinar will discuss how major corporations are using "scorecards” to evaluate, manage and measure supplier environmental performance, and demonstrate how meeting and event industry professionals can adapt this strategy to influence their suppliers’ practices.

Participants will review sample scorecards and learn how to use the APEX/ASTM standard as a framework for creating their own assessment tool.In this webinar you will:

  • Discover the key components of a scorecard
  • Understand how scorecards can be applied to help green your meeting and event supply chain
  • Learn how to create scorecards that align with the APEX/ASTM standards.
