• Director of Sustainability, MeetGreen

Shawna is a “sustainability solutionary”—someone who believes in the power of events to make the world a better place. A leader in busting the myth that meeting green is hard, she was the project manager for the first online tool for green meetings. She is also a founding member and the first executive director of the Green Meeting Industry Council. Working with clients who saw the value of sharing their green meeting experiences, she developed a body of event sustainability case studies, which she freely shares with the planning community so others can reduce the environmental footprint of their events. Her work has laid the foundation for a greener meetings industry and a better tomorrow.
