    Revision of E2741 - 11 Standard Specification for Evaluation and Selection of Destinations for Environmentally Sustainable Meetings, Events, Trade Shows, and Conferences

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E2741 - 11

    Developed by Subcommittee: E60.02 | Committee E60 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK46900

    1. Rationale

    4.3.7.2The supplier shall establish three-month baseline of products made with recycled (post- and pre-consumer) content, recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable materials. It is suggested to change from a 12 month baseline to a 3 month baseline. Three months of data is sufficient to provide an overview of general purchasing practices of the supplier. Gathering more than three months worth of data on purchases is excessive and a barrier in terms of time and resources. In addition, there is not support that the additional months of data provide any new or additional benefit.
