12 Tips to Improve Sustainability at Your Corporate Event

12 Tips to Improve Sustainability at Your Corporate Event

  1. Go paperless by using apps or providing USB drives with handouts, speaker bios, agendas and show guides. CrowdCompass mobile apps can help.
  2. Design menus around seasonal produce (e.g. Winter, Autumn).
  3. Use Sustainable Harvest coffee, tea and chocolate.
  4. Build relationships with farm-to-table caterers and venues.
  5. Incorporate ocean-to-table seafood dining into your corporate events.
  6. Provide jugs of water instead of plastic water bottles.
  7. Give attendees refillable water bottles and provide filling stations.
  8. Ensure that all disposables are sustainable and, if possible, compostable. Eco-kits have compostable plates cups, glasses and cutlery.
  9. Serve “to go” lunches or snacks in re-usable containers or bags. Lunchskins come in a variety of design to fit corporate event themes.
  10. Re-cycle paper products, cans and bottles.
  11. Put out bins to make it easy for corporate event attendees to discard paper, cans, food and garbage separately. Check out the Mobius 4 compartment recycling bin.
  12. Put out receptacles to encourage attendees to recycle badge holders and name tags.
