Sustainable Meetings - The Fairmont Waterfront

Sustainable Meetings

The Fairmont Waterfront proudly embraces a philosophy of sustainability, environmental stewardship and community involvement.

Your next meeting or conference can be dynamic and flawless while having a positive outcome beyond the meeting room’s doors. As a responsible business or event planner, we invite you to join our own team of event planners in creating a beneficial impact in our community.

The Fairmont Waterfront is the 2012 winner of the Environmentally Responsible Business Award from the Council of Tourism Associations. With our Eco-Meet Program, event planners are given the opportunity to minimize the ecological footprint of meetings through the reduction of waste and the conservation of valuable resources.

The Fairmont Waterfront offers planners the opportunity to:

Minimize Your Meeting Footprint

Eco-Meet is our exclusive green conference planning option. Benefits include local, organic gourmet menus, disposable-free food and beverage service, and carbon neutral, eco-friendly hotel options. In addition, event planners can request that food leftovers be donated to a local charity.

Give Back

Our Hotel Volunteers Option allows meeting planners and their guests to give back on a personal level while bonding as a team, through hands-on community outreach excursions. Evergreen, for example, allows your team to get in touch with nature and invigorate the city by planting trees, plants and shrubs in public spaces.

Make Meetings Matter

Together we can make a commitment to community well-being and environmental sustainability. Through our Meetings That Matter Promotion, designate 10% of your guest room revenue to either a local charity supported by The Fairmont Waterfront, or to one that resonates more closely with you and your guests.
