Hosts Global is Growing in a Very Green Way…
Here at Hosts Global we are always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint and bring more sustainable event options to the table for those looking to do the same. So what better way, and day, to share the news that Hosts Global Alliance is growing again! We are thrilled to announce our two new Hosts Global Strategic Partners that can help all your sustainable event dreams come true! Welcome Trees for Travel and their inaugural program, Trees for Events – and Food Recovery Network to the Hosts Global Family!
Food Waste in the United States
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.
More Than Just Trees…
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.
