At Hosts Global, we are committed to minimizing our environmental impact, supporting our local communities, and operating in a socially responsible way.
We recognize that our business activities have an impact on the environment, society, and the economy, and we are committed to minimizing that impact and creating a sustainable future.
Through our sustainability strategy, we are focused on reducing our carbon footprint, conserving natural resources, and supporting the communities where we operate. We have set ambitious targets to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, water usage, and waste generation, and we are continually striving to improve our performance in these areas.
In addition to what we do as a company, we are committed to bringing sustainable event solutions for our clients. Hosts Global’s Strategic Partners, Trees4Travel and Food Recovery Network, are here to help provide eco-solutions to all.
You can now experience our amazing world in the knowledge that your event travel is a force for good with Trees4Travel and their program, Trees4Events. Trees are one of the most powerful absorbers of carbon emissions – by planting trees in developing countries as you travel, you’ll also help to restore ecosystems, biodiversity & support local communities through the dignity of employment – together building a more sustainable & equitable world. Which is pretty darn great.
Reforestation will help reverse climate change, but trees can be fragile & take time to grow, so to ensure we remove or compensate your travel carbon emissions as soon as possible, we always connect each tree to United Nations (CER) certified emissions reduction renewable energy carbon credits, essentially doubling our promise.
Sustainability at your events is now effortless with the most comprehensive free emissions calculator. This powerful tool guides you to make any meeting a climate positive event from conception to compensation.
Approximately 40% of the food produced in the United States is wasted, yet one in eight Americans struggle with hunger. Food reduction, aside from source reduction, is the preferred method to address our nation’s food waste problem and is highly encouraged through federal government initiatives.
In 2015, the USDA and EPA set a domestic goal to reduce food loss and waste by 50% by 2030. Food Recovery Network (FRN) supports this national goal by helping food businesses and events divert their perfectly good food from landfills onto the plates of people who need it most.
The governing principles guiding this policy are:
All event planning activities shall support our sustainability values:
We acknowledge our role in preserving the planet’s land, water and air for present and future generations.
We strive to care for the people of the world, especially those impacted by our organization’s operations and decisions.
We strive to operate our organization with efficiency and fiscal responsibility.
