GoGreen Seattle Green Exhibitor Pledge Form
Thank you for partnering with us for the GoGreen Seattle conference. This year we are excited to take the sustainability power of Seattle and beyond to produce an event that leads in all ways and we need your help! This pledge is a short 13 question survey that explores your commitment to sustainable practices as a business and while at the conference. With each one of you committing to sustainable exhibiting practices and making small changes to the way they exhibit, it adds up to a massive effort. Our goal is to have 100% of our exhibitors sign the Green Pledge!
Each exhibitor will complete the pledge form prior to the conference. This should take 10 minutes.
Our staff will make every effort to assist you with the form.
Pledged exhibitors will be awarded with our "Green Star", recognition and features throughout the event.
Exhibitor's who have a total of 30 points or more will be eligible for the Green Star.
Third Party Verification
Many of our exhibitors's sustainability practices are verified by another organization. This can include B-corps, LEED certifications, Sustainability at Work Green Business, etc.
Signing on to WOHESC's Green Pledge would be a verification to use at other events!
Do you have a certification for green practices?
No, but we would like to!
If yes, please share which.
