Editorial Reviews

Review

Finally, the definitive word on green meetings from the industry pioneers. Nancy and Amy provide a clear, compelling business case to mainstream organizations for integrating environmental thinking into event planning, and offer cost-saving tools and advice to enable every meeting to become not just greener, but better. --Joel Makower, Executive Editor, GreenBiz.com

Green meetings are one way that the planners can contribute to solving the serious environmental challenges of our time and meet the new strategic imperative for businesses to be socially responsible. Amy and Nancy have de-mystified high-impact green actions with their practical and flexible approach in this user-friendly book. --Marge Anderson, Associate Director, Energy Center of Wisconsin

Amy Spatrisano and Nancy Wilson, acknowledged leaders in the greening of the meeting industry, have put together a highly useful, practical guidance document for meeting planners to make their events more environmentally responsible. Simple Steps to Green Meetings and Events describes actionable steps that organizations at any level of commitment can implement. One of the most valuable themes in this work is that you don't have to be an expert, or try to do everything at once, to make a difference. The authors sprinkle the text with real examples and data to support their assertion that these actions result in benefits to the environment as well as to the bottom line of all involved. --Arthur B. Weissman, Ph.D., President & CEO, Green Seal, Inc.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Janice Moore on November 26, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book was extremely interesting to read and far exceeded my expectations in terms of giving real-world advice that I can use immediately. As a planner I am always charged with showing a positive impact to the bottom line and this book shows me how to do the right thing for hte Earth while also saving money.

In fact, by doing just a few of the tips in the book, I'll be able to save literally thousands of dollars!

By P. HR on May 27, 2008
Format: Paperback
after having had the opportunity to attend one of Amy's lectures I was convinced, buying the book would be a good idea! and it was: the book provides the reader with an overview of the relevant fields of activity, fast facts and more detailed and very practical information on what to do in each of these fields. For anyone who wants to start greening events it is informative and perfectly helpful and can be a great source of inspiration!
