Integrity is at the heart of our company ethos. It is more than following the law, but about building trust with all our stakeholders and dealing fairly with our customers.
At Global Engage we are at the beginning of a project to make our meetings more sustainable. We have joined ISLA – a body created to accelerate the event industry’s transition to a sustainable future. Our goal is to measure and record the CO2 emissions of our meetings, with the ultimate goal of reducing them as far as practicable before looking at offsetting them.
Details of the green policies of the venues will be published on the meeting website.
Plastic badge holders have been replaced with card name badges attached to a lanyard. Return your lanyard to the registration desk when you leave so it can be reused.
Printed conference documentation and agenda. All the meeting information is now available on an event app. Make sure you have it downloaded to your devices in time for the meeting. Get Agorify on Google Play and Apple App Store.
You will have some great food choices while you are with us but we have worked with the caterer to increase the proportion of plant-based items. Our aim is that you have some great meals, whilst with us, but with less environmental impact by the time you leave.
What you can do
An international meeting does involve travel but where it is practical, please consider more sustainable alternatives to flying. The app will also have a discussion space to arrange ride shares, so if you’re local or staying at a different hotel make use of it to cut the number of journeys being made.
To offset the carbon caused by attending a meeting we will provide you with offsetting options. Our analysis suggests that last year attending a two-day conference produced .65 tonnes of C02e per person which can be offset for approx.€12 per person. All Staff attending the meeting will be offset.
Where we have consent from our expert speakers the presentations will be actively promoted to developing nations and students as a free resource.
Our commitment is to make sustainable choices wherever we can.
