MIAMI, Fla. — 1 Hotels has introduced Certified Sustainable Gatherings, a new approach that offers the opportunity to create stunning, unforgettable events that are designed to minimize environmental impact.
Whether it’s a corporate event, gala, meeting, wedding or private celebration, Certified Sustainable Gatherings provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity to plan an event that’s fully dedicated to eco-consciousness. 1 Hotels has partnered with Foodprint Group to offer comprehensive third-party certification, ensuring that the entire planning process is meticulously designed to assist clients in sourcing sustainable materials, minimizing single-use plastic waste, lowering carbon emissions and diverting at least 90 per cent of all waste generated throughout the event lifecycle.
Certified Sustainable Gatherings is focused on customization and flexibility, allowing clients to curate events in adherence with six guiding principles. Categories include:
- Reduce Waste with Haste
- Sip & Savour, Sustainably
- Value-Based Vendors
- Curate Do-Good Decor
- Select Service Ware that Serves the Planet
- Communication Consciously
- Leave with Memory and Measurements
Prior to launching Certified Sustainable Gatherings, 1 Hotels piloted a wide range of taste events, including dinner parties, corporate events, weddings and private celebrations, and achieved more than 90 per cent waste diversion for each event.
“Each hotel is designed to celebrate the local area’s natural environment and offer an oasis that integrates the best of sustainable design and architecture with extraordinary comfort and unrivaled service,” says Matt Erickson, president, Food & Beverage, SH Hotels & Resorts. “Certified Sustainable Gatherings is a natural extension of this commitment, offering clients a new way to make a positive impact on the planet while enjoying an unforgettable event.”
