If you are planning a corporate event, you may want to consider the impact of your party. By incorporating green practices into your next event, you can help highlight the sustainability of your business. With a few simple measures, you will be able to conserve resources and reduce the environmental impact of your event. Here are some tips for planning a “greener” corporate event.

Choose the right venue

When you are planning a sustainable corporate event, it is a great idea to select a venue that can provide you with green services. For example, an outdoor event during warmer months will help to conserve electricity and other resources. In addition, be sure to ask about the recycling facilities and energy efficient programs that the venue has to offer.

Incorporate sustainable catering

The catering of your event is a great way to highlight the ways in which your company is going green. You may want to plan a menu that showcases local and seasonal produce and ingredients. In addition, you may want to seek out green catering options, such as compostable dinnerware and bulk condiment dispensers.

Encourage green transportation

Transportation to and from your event is another opportunity to reduce the environmental impact. To improve the sustainability of your event, you should encourage guests to carpool to the event. Planning an event near your offices can also allow employees to walk to the event, rather than driving.
