To address this request, some hotels, at check-in, are now offering guests the option of foregoing housekeeping services for loyalty points and/or on-site restaurant credit. The continuing “Go Green” efforts of hotels are giving guests as many options as possible while satisfying planner demand and being environmentally responsible.
So, as you are making meeting location choices, keeping in mind your organization’s CSR goals, inquire about the availability of opt-out and green choice programs. You will not only be meeting your organization’s CSR goals but also pleasing attendees who want to support businesses that protect and preserve the local environment.
