AIHce Green Initiatives Conclude with Tree Planting Ceremony

At the 2008 American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Exposition, which ended June 5, the American Industrial Hygiene Association implemented many green initiatives in the city of Minneapolis.

The organization said that its AIHce event has been progressively applying green meeting initiatives and expanding its efforts annually to become more environmentally friendly. These new initiatives have ranged from moving conference information to the web to its latest initiative--providing electronic handouts for selected pre-conference professional development courses.

In addition to these efforts, AIHA leaders donated a tree to the city of Minneapolis. "In a city that has been a leader in creating practices that protect and enhance the environment, AIHce thought it would be a great opportunity to show our appreciation to Minneapolis (our host city) and our dedication to 'going green' by donating a tree (an Amur Maple to be exact) to the city of Minneapolis," said AIHA President Donald J. Hart, Ph.D., CIH.

These green initiatives were developed from attendees' suggestions/requests, numerous green meeting Web sites and white papers, the Environmental Protection Agency's Pollution Prevention Division, and the Green Meeting Industry Council’s recommendations.
