Greening Your Event with GotGreen?™ Event Certification

REDUCE – REUSE – RECYCLE – OFFSET THE REST

Waste StatisticsFirmGreen’s GotGreen?™ Event Consulting makes it easy to offset the pollution generated by any size or type of event.

Reducing and offsetting an events carbon footprint is important not only for the event attendees but for the community’s overall health and environmental improvement. Reducing and offsetting all types of emissions is important. Pollution caused by events include: carbon dioxide, particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, trash, human wastes, and more.

How it Works..

FirmGreen calculates the pollution caused by energy use and other sources associated with your event:
  • Electricity and fuel use during the event
  • Travel to and from the event
  • Food preparation and cleanup for event meals
  • Electricity used in hotel rooms by participants and staff, etc.
  • Solid Waste

We then design a plan to reduce, reuse, recycle and offset the environmental impacts caused by the event. Afterwards, FirmGreen verifies, documents and recognizes the event for the level of offsets achieved.

Not only is it the right thing to do --it’s now the law in California. Events of a certain size are mandated to offset their environmental impacts by Section 42648 - 42648.7
