Environmental awareness is a growing concern, especially in the world of business. You can help boost your company’s green image by hosting an event using environmentally conscious components. There are many eco-friendly elements you can incorporate into your business style, from advertising materials and operational supplies to the lunch menu. Here are just a few tips for how to throw a successful corporate event that will make a minimal impact on the environment:
1. Bring the Green Inside
Look for creative ways to use recycled materials for your next banquet, seminar, or official event. You can use bioplastic materials for trays and bowls, bamboo or corkboard for hanging signs and banners, wood tables that can be recycled after the event, and more. Think about the effect your event will have on the environment and look for ways to use recycled or recyclable materials. Or, simply have your employees carpool to the event; every little bit helps.
2. Reduce Your Paper Usage
It takes hundreds of trees to print paper invitations for your event, so consider using social media and e-mails to reach your potential attendees. You can also use recycled paper to advertise your event and decorate your event station. Take advantage of this high-tech world we live in and incorporate links to your company’s website, online registration avenues, Smartphone apps, and online updates on your event’s schedule.
3. Expand on Green Initiatives
Plan meetings, events, and activities that place emphasis on your company’s environmental goals. This will educate your attendees on environmental consciousness and boost your company’s reputation as a leader in green business initiatives.
