At Pierce, we help clients take advantage of the growing opportunities to reduce the environmental impact of our corporate events. Today, there is no shortage of opportunities to make a difference by reducing waste and increasing sustainability. More and more, companies of all sizes and industries are seeing the benefits to their brand and the planet.
When it comes to the greening of business events, it starts with location sourcing. Finding venues that are centrally located, or in big cities, can significantly reduce air travel and its costs to the environment – and budget!
Environmental concerns can also be a differentiator among competing hotels.
Do they participate in a local food recycling program? Are electric vehicles available for guest shuttles? Is the property Energy Star® or LEED® certified? There are more options for clients to build sustainable practices into corporate meetings all the time, and Pierce is dedicated to bringing them to our events.
Digital delivery of program information is a baseline for us. Our app-focused event management tools allow paperless distribution of everything from airline tickets and registration to schedules and slide decks.
Eliminating single-use plastics is huge, as well, particularly on the Food & Beverage side. Plates and silverware can now all be either biodegradable or reusable. Boxes, cans or glass can replace plastic water bottles. And think twice about what’s in that boxed lunch. Even our name badges are made from a plastic-free biodegradable coated paper.
Let us help you build a greener meeting.
