GREEN CME - MCE Conferences Continuing Medical Education (CME) is committed to creating a healthy and sustainable environment.

Our “green CME” initiative will pursue and utilize practices that will use less energy and natural resources. Use none, use less, and reuse is our philosophy.

By offering and utilizing “green” alternatives, we will be helping to protect our natural resources.

Some of the current ecological practices that we have in place are as follows: -Using CD Disk to hold paper intensive educational materials such as syllabi and abstract books -Creating websites and e-mail blasts in place of printing brochures or postcards -Reusing signage, if possible, from year to year Encouraging the recycling of name badge holders, lanyards and writing utensils after a meeting has adjourned -Using recycled copy and printer paper

MCE Conferences CME encourages you to support our “green CME” movement by taking advantage of our responsible and eco-friendly practices and resources. We also welcome all suggestions and ideas that you have regarding new or alternative ways in which we can embrace the “green” movement.
