Meetings & Events

Meetings and event providers are helping clients enjoy the benefits of in-person meetings while achieving corporate sustainability goals. Meetings and event providers now offer sustainable venues and sustainably sourced food and beverage options. Equipped with tools to calculate their carbon emissions, event planners can evaluate their environmental footprint and act on recommendations to limit events’ impact.
