Goldblatt's Greener Events broadly explores sustainable management in the hospitality, tourism, conference and exhibition, and meeting and event industries, as well as countless smaller industries that include arts and music festivals and tour operators. It provides a greater understanding of the modern special events industry, how to implement sustainable practices, and acquire useful tools for career development. The book is divided into three parts, which reflect defining principles of greener meetings and events: Innovation, Conservation, and Education. Part One begins with an introduction to sustainability. Chapter Two describes event pollution, while Chapters Three and Four guide you through a sustainable event plan and provide useful tools for planning, implementing, and measuring sustainable practices strategically. Part Two, Conservation, explains the major topics of greener meeting and event management and Part Three, Education, shows how meetings and events can support social issues through social sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
