Lago Maggiore Green Meeting
It's a new product offered by Lago Maggiore Meeting Industry: a network of operators guaranteeing to end users an event which will fully respect the environment, following a specific code of behaviour.

This code of behaviour, worked out starting from the best of international experience, envisages tangible measures to reduce the environmental impact for suppliers, organisers, and participants, and takes account of all the activities and services involved: location management, hospitality, catering, transport, free time activities, events, communication, and marketing.

Lago Maggiore Green Meeting works on the basis of three principles:
­- sustainable management of the event through a process of organisation that reduces environmental impact
­- innovation and quality in seeking out new solutions for the “green meeting” model
­- partnerships, i.e. the commitment to develop a network of products and professional services based on sustainable principles.

Lago Maggiore Green Meeting has been planned and is implemented to reduce the consumption of energy and material, greenhouse gas emissions, the production of waste, and the use of water.

When the event is over, a report is drawn up to give account of the practical efforts of the operators to reduce its environmental impact.
