Lots of companies including hotels, have created initiatives to make more environmentally friendly meetings.
Recently, Starwood Hotels & Resorts has implemented Sustainable Meetings at their properties. Stating: “Good for business — and our planet. You’ll plan a meeting that’s thoughtful to the environment, your budget and your attendees’ experience. We do this by making sustainability the standard.”
Some of their strategies include hosting paperless meetings, using recycled paper for printed materials and providing access to sustainable transportation services. Starwood even provides you with an “environmental report card” after your event to sum up your sustainable strategies and allow you to calculate the carbon footprint.
