A few of our recommendations to assist your business increase your sustainability and environmental responsibility would be:
- Green Events
Broad guidelines for a greener event are that it should be organised electronically, minimise carbon emissions for travelling delegates and speakers, save energy, practice recycling, and adopt environmentally-thoughtful measures wherever practical and possible.
- Green Venues and Destinations
There are now a number of venues/hotels worldwide that have adopted green strategies, from special laundry and recycling programmes to waste compaction, and energy and water conservation to producing locally source food. Some London Hotels now filter their own water.
- Reducing Your Carbon Footprint
Each of us leaves a carbon dioxide ‘footprint’ that contributes to the ‘greenhouse effect’. Individual delegates could be introduced to the idea of eliminating their CO2 emissions impact by buying carbon credits www.carbonneutral.com
Conference literature, pens, name badges etc are all commodities that can be recycled post the event. Wherever your event takes place globally, Crème Conferences have an approved list of accredited ground teams who can procure recycled materials for your event.
- Inspirational Speakers
Invite an environmentalist to speak at the event in order to highlight conservation challenges and successes. Such case-studies inevitably embrace relevant issues of leadership, management and motivation.
