Organise This is an event management company that specialises in sustainable events. http://www.organisethis.co.uk/sustainability.php¬†There may be other companies that do so, but this one is really active and very up front about their green-ness, and without a hint of flakiness. It’s really impressive that they’ve worked with the British Standards¬†Institute to develop sustainability standards for managing events. See the link for more about conferences on sustainable events.¬†
