The aims and objectives are an important section of this project as this gives the main points, which means there is focus for the research. The aim of this dissertation is to establish the extent to which Bristol’s conference venues are environmentally friendly. The aim will be reached by a breakdown using the following objectives: 1) To critically review definitions of environmentally friendly conference venues. 2) To critically analyse the Green Tourism Business Scheme. 3) To establish how conference venue managers define 'green'. 4) To identify the processes involved in running an environmentally friendly conference, from the products to the suppliers. 5) To establish whether conference venue managers consider green conferences to be a lasting trend. The Green Tourism Business Scheme is the main organisation which is used within this project; however, there are other businesses which were greatly involved within the primary research section as they provided the answers to the questions being asked. The methods of investigation used within this project included interviews and questionnaires with carefully selected businesses. This incorporated quantitative and qualitative research methods, providing a wide scope of research. This project concluded that Bristol was an up and coming city for environmentally friendliness; however, there is still a way to go with the environmentally friendly and sustainable conference venues within the city.
