This project, developed in conjunction with various sectors of Boston’s convention and tourism industry, involves a diverse array of sustainable practices. The project aims to help the City’s convention and visitor industry grow by differentiating Boston as an environmentally appealing or “green” destination. The project engages individual businesses and associations, including Boston’s convention centers, Massachusetts Lodging Association, Massachusetts Restaurant Association, Chefs Collaborative, transportation vendors, tour operators, event planners and visitors’ offices.
The project encourages businesses to become recognized as environmentally preferred facilities/operations by:
• carrying out initiatives necessary to become qualified for existing certification programs;
• meeting other types of existing standards or
• describing their facility’s environmental achievements.
