PORTLAND, ORE.—MeetGreen is launching the MeetGreen Calculator 2.0 for Sustainable Events updated to align with today’s standards, track green meeting initiatives and provide state-of-the-art reporting with a newly-designed user-friendly interface.
The MeetGreen Calculator 2.0 is a comprehensive tool designed to measure sustainable event management practices by assessing the environmental impact of conference activities in 14 key areas allowing event organizers to benchmark their achievements and compare against other events.
Here are just a few of the upgrades:
We Meet You Where You Are, Introducing Two Options: We believe everyone should be able to measure the green practices of an event and you shouldn’t have to be an expert to see how good your intentions look on paper. MeetGreen Calculator 2.0 has two options, Standard and Advanced. The Standard version provides a way for organizers to assess their event and benchmark their practices before taking additional steps. The Advanced version is a more in-depth look at the practices and indicators to track an event’s sustainability data.
Return on Practice (ROP): While the MeetGreen Calculator has always rewarded action, we realize that asking is also important, even if you don’t always get what you want. The Calculator 2.0 now rewards some points for asking for best practices. You earn even more points if you are able to implement what you ask for.
Help Along the Way: Often, finding and understanding the sustainability descriptions, definitions, and information resources involved can slow the process considerably. The 2.0 version of the Calculator now includes helpful information right alongside the questions without ever leaving the page or search for a help option.
A free trial is being offered between now and Earth Day (April 22).
