Event planning

Should the City of Alexandria require businesses, organizations and associations that host conferences and events to use sustainable practices in the planning and delivery of the event? These could include the following requirements:

  • Host the event at a location accessible by mass transit
  • Provide healthy food offerings sourced locally
  • Use reusable or biodegradable silverware and dinnerware
  • Reduce waste by offering electronic programs and handouts
  • Use soy-based inks and recycled paper for hard copies of promotional material
  • Offer carbon emissions offsets for out-of-town participants
  • Provide recycling and composting receptacles
