Global standards development organization ASTM International issued February 16 a set of standards to help organizers plan and manage environmentally sustainable events and meetings. The standards cover eight categories: destinations, exhibits, transportation, audio visual and production, communication and marketing materials, on-site offices, food and beverage, and meeting venues. The organization plans to issue standards for accommodations in late spring or early summer. The Global Reporting Initiative issued sustainability reporting guidelines for the events sector in January.
