When we saw the photo, before we scrolled down to the calculation, Karen’s comment was: “My goodness! Don’t all those people who flew to the conference realize how much carbon they’re emitting with the cardboard they’re wasting?” Meetings and events is not the only industry where people focus obsessively on the small impacts that are right in front of them, without addressing the far larger impacts across their supply chains. But it’s certainly an area where meetings practice needs drastic improvement.

What must also be noted is these materials should be either donated or recycled at the end of the event. In the case of The Sustainable Meetings Conference 2014, these products were donated to SCRAP in San Francisco.
