MONTREAL — Tourisme Montréal, in partnership with SENS communication, continues its sustainable development efforts with the launch of two directories designed to help corporate event organizers and delegates looking to make a positive social and environmental impact in the city.
The first directory lists a variety of donation opportunities in addition to recycling and re-use options to offset an event footprint, while the second offers an array of volunteer activities available in the Montreal community. The Donation, Recyling and Re-use Directory, for example, features organizations to donate surplus food, clothing, furniture and equipment not used during corporate events. The Directory of Volunteer Activities offers a list of group volunteer activities, including turnkey projects to facilitate organization for companies looking to do their part. The program details essential information, such as the organization’s size, mission, volunteer activity format and convenient times in which to organize them.
“Business event organizers are concerned about generating a positive footprint during their visit and leaving their mark afterwards,” says Yves Lalumière, president and CEO of Tourisme Montréal. “Sustainability is at the heart of our tourism development, so these two new directories are a way for us to keep Montreal at the forefront of industry trends, while generating a positive impact for citizens and local organizations.”
