Let's Make It a Green Event!

We are happy to announce some efforts we undertake to reduce the environmental footprint of our training programmes:

  • We have chosen a venue location that is close to public transport, and ensured that accommodation is provided within walking distance of the training facilities in order to reduce transportation needs

  • We have chosen a venue location that has energy-efficiency and water-saving measures in place

  • We have decorated the event using reusable or recyclable signage and materials, and will minimize the use of disposable items during the event

  • We will provide food and beverages using recyclable or reusable serviceware. Did you know roughly 8 million tons of plastic is dumped into the world's oceans every year, and nearly 60% of this waste comes from just five countries: China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Let's foster positive change and lead by example!

  • We will avoid single packaged items and have recycling facilities in place at all times in order to minimize waste

  • We will provide water stations instead of distributing bottled water

  • We will source food, goods and services from local providers whenever possible

  • We will offer mostly vegetarian food to avoid the footprint derived from meat production. Livestock farming contributes 18% of human produced greenhouse gas emissions worldwide; this is more than all direct emissions from ships, planes, trucks, cars and all other transport put together

  • We won’t distribute paper documents during events; rather, we will provide all training materials and resources online in order to minimize printing

  • We will not provide takeaway items

 

How can you contribute? We invite you to join our efforts by:

  • Using the public transport when arriving from the airport and during the rest of your time in Bangkok

  • Avoiding unnecessary use of electricity or water in the hotel rooms

  • Not buying plastic, disposable, or single packaged items

  • Using the recycling facilities and water stations

  • Choosing vegetarian food options

  • Bringing your computer to the training programme in order to avoid printing materials

 

Thank you for embracing a green meeting spirit!

Sincerely,
