Festivals & Events
Festivals & Events are important to statewide and local tourism efforts. However, they can also result in significant environmental impacts from the wastes generated, the amount of materials used, transportation to and from events, and the energy and water consumed during the event. For an environmentally-responsible organization, a wasteful festival, conference or event can be embarrassing; and it can literally have a negative impact on an otherwise positive experience for the participants. Conversely, thoughtfully-planned “green events” will clearly communicate to participants that the organizers are committed to minimizing the event’s environmental impacts.

Planning a green event does not mean additional incurred costs – it simply requires a change in mindset and some thoughtful, up-front planning. Facilities and venues that are prepared to host green conferences, meetings, and events will make the event organizer’s job that much easier; and hopefully, that facility will be rewarded with repeat business and referrals. And participants in the Virginia Green Travel program would be the natural choice for hosting green conferences, meetings, and events!
