    Revision of E2772 - 13e1 Standard Specification for Evaluation and Selection of Accommodations for Environmentally Sustainable Meetings, Events, Trade Shows, and Conferences

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E2772 - 13e1

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



    WK47012

    1. Rationale

    Balloted Change to 4.2.7.2: It is suggested to change from a 12 month base line 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 potential barrier to adoption in terms of time and resources to demonstrate compliance. In addition, there is not support that the additional months of data provide any new or additional benefit. Balloted Change to 4.2.7.7: The definition of bulk is unclear as the baseline expectation is different based on product type (example -monitors vs note pads). The suggested language is used in other standards within the E60.02 suite of standards.
