Meetings industry called for sustainability

Published on : Tuesday, February 28, 2017

UNWTO logoThe meetings industry has been summoned by the WTO to enhance its focus on sustainability saying that individuals can become agents just in case.

 
While delivering a speech at the green meetings and events conference (gme) in Germany, Dr Dirk Glaesser, director for the Sustainable Development Program of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) said that every meeting planner should have a minimum level of responsibility.

 
To quote Dr. Dirk, ‘’ For the conference and congress industry this means, above all, implementing the guiding principle for sustainable development and sustainability targets at meetings, events and conferences. This sector has recognized – earlier than many other sectors – that sustainability is not a theme but an inherent feature.”

 
2017 has been identified as the international year of sustainable tourism for development by UN at the 70th general assembly. On 13th Feb and 14th Feb, the fourth green meetings and events conference was organized in Waiblingen which lured more than 250 attendees. Corporate social responsibility was the theme of the bi-annual conference.
