Hyatt Hotels throughout North America are offering a 3 percent discount on meetings that take steps to reduce energy consumption and waste. Among the company's suggestions:
• Place handouts, pads and pens in a central location so attendees can take only as needed.
• Print locally, to avoid having to ship crates of programs and other papers.
• Ask housekeeping to keep rooms at room temperature (around 70 degrees), instead of much colder or warmer.
