Earlier this year, KPMG invited me to attend its “Business Perspective on Sustainable Growth: Preparing for Rio+20” summit. Basically, the audit, tax and advisory services firm wanted to prove its commitment to the triple bottom line (people, planet, profit) to clients and prospects while seeking to address their very real concerns of regional and international “green” regulation. Firm leaders determined that only a face-to-face, in-person, live meeting would get the job done. And they wanted it all done sustainably.
Thanks to IHG's support of our corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative, I was able to attend and write a case study on just how KPMG was able to accomplish these goals. KPMG was also generous enough to share with our members its green meetings guidelines and hotel sustainability questionnaire, which you'll find in the report. (Don't forget when you download, that the report can be found in your library at the top right of the MPI page.)
