Are food, coffee and beverages locally produced or fairtrade?

Your waste:

Do you use cups, glasses and cutlery rather than plastic drinking vessels and plates?

Do your printed materials use recycled paper and card?

Do you use reusable displays, banners and name badges?

Do guests have the option to separate their waste, and do you specify where waste paper and used batteries are to be deposited?
 
Your venue and your hotel:

Does the venue or the hotel have an environmental strategy signed by the management group?

Has the venue or the hotel established written environmental objectives and drafted an action plan on how to achieve them?

Are environmental issues taken into account when re-purchasing bathroom equipment, electronic kitchen appliances and office machines in order to minimize water and power consumption?

Does the hotel or venue use chemical herbicides on their surrounding parks and lawns?
