Coast Hotels makes it easy to be kind to the environment while you go about your business. Our U.S. & Canada business hotels offer the eCoast Meetings program as our commitment to ensuring you have all the resources you need to hold a productive meeting, while also making it easy to hold a green meeting too.
When you choose an eCoast Meeting, your benefits include:
Carbon Credits to Offset Your Meeting
Your Coast catering consultant has a carbon offset calculator that can estimate the carbon offsets that are required to offset your meeting. The cost calculated is simply posted to your meeting invoice, and voila your meeting will be offset.
Our carbon offset calculators provide an in-depth analysis of your meeting by looking at:
- Number of days/nights of the event
- Number of guests and room nights
- Percentage of meeting space used
- GHG emissions from energy and electricity consumed during the event
- GHG emissions from guest travel to/from/during the event
- GHG emissions from waste produced
- GHG emissions from paper used
Recycled Flip Chart Paper or White Boards
Recycled paper is a small change that is easy to implement in any meeting—yet it can have a huge impact. You may even choose to go paperless altogether and use our ample white boards.
Plastic-Free Food and Beverage Service
You’ll find pitchers and glasses instead of plastic water bottles, and reusable plates and cups.
Recycling and Compost Bins
Bins will be placed throughout the meeting facility to encourage attendees to recycle and reduce waste.
We make recycled notepads available for those that need them.
