Sustainable Meetings - Fairmont Pittsburgh

Sustainable Meetings

At Fairmont Pittsburgh, we believe meetings and conferences can have a positive impact beyond the meeting room, as today’s responsible companies and planners endeavor to seek out opportunities to give something back to their meeting destinations. Our creative event planners custom tailor programs to meet the needs of your busy group while at the same time offering unique opportunities to positively impact our community.

Fairmont Pittsburgh is also proud to be the city's first luxury hotel to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification at the Gold level from the U.S. Green Buildings Council. From water conserving features and state-of-the-art recycling systems, to the local artwork displayed throughout the hotel, Fairmont Pittsburgh is committed to environmental initiatives and the community that we call home.

We offer planners the opportunity to:

  • minimize their meeting footprint with Eco-Meet, our exclusive green conference planning option that lessens the environmental impact of the meeting through reduced resource consumption

  • give back on a more personal level through one of our hands-on volunteerism programs that allow meeting planners and their guests to bond as a team through shared community outreach excursions such as assembling educational "veggie packets" for low income families to promote healthy living with Grow Pittsburgh

  • designate 10% of guest room revenue to either a local charity supported by Fairmont Pittsburgh and aligned with Fairmont’s commitment to community well-being and environmental sustainability, or to one that resonates more closely with their guests.

    • Grow Pittsburgh
    • Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership
