If you are planning on having an event (company retreat, big client meeting, conference, etc.), and really want to show your dedication to the environment, the location the event is held can make a difference – and be a learning experience. Not only do you show that you care, but seeing a working green facility can become part of the event as well.
In a recent article published on Smartmeetings.com (read the full article here), Dan Johnson gave us a look at some of the greenest hotels and convention centers in the U.S. These meeting places provide guests with green options at every turn. From green building practices to locally sourced food to sustainable and recycled amenities in the guest rooms and so much more. Many of these facilities use solar energy and natural lighting, actively participate in water conservation efforts and conduct community education about sustainability.
So next time you are looking for a venue to host your event, consider not only your own environmental stewardship but also that of the facility where your meetings take place.
