On Site: The Green Travel Summit

Senior Editor Mark Rogers is attending the two-day Green Travel Summit at the Fairmont Hotel in Newport Beach, CA, and reporting the latest buzz about sustainable travel within the industry.

After a keynote address by David Refkin, former director of sustainable development for Time, Inc., the event included a discussion of Royal Caribbean's environmental policy, suggestions on how to build responsible travel programs by Sun Microsystem's Randy Krumpeck, and what David Jerome of InterContinental Hotels thinks the hotel industry needs to do to contribute to sustainable tourism.
