How did our industry get involved in this standard? Who facilitates it?

The Australian Industry got involved when the not for profit association the Sustainable Event Alliance (SEA www.sustainable-event-alliance.com) proposed to Standards Australia that we (events and meetings industry of Australia) needed to take an active role in the development of this standard as it would impact on us as a whole in the future. If we were not part of it there may be potential negative implications. The SEA facilitated an industry forum where it was voted upon in the positive. From there a mirror committee made up of industry sector representatives was formed.
