UT Sustainable Business Summit

Last Friday, February 5, 2010 Emily Kahn, Founder of Green Fern Events had the honor of participating as a panelist for the UT Sustainable Business Summit. The panel session was entitled "Global Recession and its Impact on Sustainability". Other panelists included Amy Page, Chief Ozone Officer, Blue Avacado, Adam Morehead, Principal, Texas Business Group, Kasia Wood, Sales Manager, Handemade Expressions, and Niyanta Spelman, Executive Director, Rainforest Partnerships.
"Not only was it interesting to have interactive discussions with the audience, Kahn said, "it was also great to hear from fellow panelists regarding their perspective".

While the overall events and tourism industry has definitely suffered a few blows, efforts to produce sustainable meetings and events is still on the rise. "It's becoming standard practice for any smart business," Kahn said. "Not only to make your business more sustainable but to apply best green practices and values (efficiency, reducing waste, recycling, managing carbon etc.) towards the events you produce as well."
