“Going green” means making environmentally friendly choices in your daily life and activities. The goal of going green is to produce less air and water pollution to slow down global warming and protect our natural resources. Adopting green initiatives protects the environment for future generations. Today, corporations invest billions of dollars into environmental sustainability programs, making it part of their culture.
Those planning to host a corporate meeting, conference, seminar, or fundraiser can take steps to make events eco-friendly and more sustainable. Strategies include using fewer resources and reducing waste.
In practice, some examples include:
- using recyclable name badges
- paperless agendas
- having waste bins for recyclable materials
- hosting an event with group transportation
Choose a “Green” Destination
Florida leads the way in providing sustainable options for business conferences and meetings. An event’s location can have a significant impact in supporting sustainability goals.

There are nearly 300 Charge Point stations for electric vehicles in convenient locations in the Orlando area.
