Green Exhibit Checklist
What is the Green Exhibit Checklist (GEC)?
The Green Exhibit Checklist is a tool to evaluate the environmental sustainability of exhibits. The goal of the GEC is to inspire exhibit teams to plan exhibits with environmental considerations in mind. It awards points in 5 key strategies for reducing the environmental impact of exhibit production, plus a sixth category for innovation.
Please download it and test it on your own exhibit!
The checklist is the first step in creating a full kit of practice guides for sustainable exhibit development. The checklist will be revised over the next few years, so please send your comments!
