Infinity has taken the following steps to increase awareness and implement sustainable initiatives within our organization:

  • Ordering recycled or biodegradable materials
  • Recycling excess generic materials
  • As an alternative to folders and binders and to reduce duplication of paper materials whenever possible by suggesting items be provided on a CD-ROM, USB drive, posted on a conference Web site or App
  • Including sustainable initiatives in facility contracts that cover placement of labeled recycling bins, as well as labeled bins for real trash, near each meeting room and at registration/break areas
  • Office recycling of all plastics, paper, cans, glass and cardboard
  • Using 100% recycled paper
  • Donation of unused meeting materials such as pens, pads of paper, and bags to local schools, homeless shelters, and non-profit organizations
  • Suggesting the option of using our Survey Monkey account to evaluate meetings instead of having participants complete paper evaluation forms
  • Presenting clients with the option of having presentations and participant lists e-mailed to participants as opposed to having speakers or Infinity staff provide printed copies
  • Working with clients to effectively use Web and App announcements, online registration accessible via internet and mobile, and e-mail confirmations as opposed to paper versions
  • Creating reusable signage and banners for reoccurring meetings and using sleeves and sign inserts for specific event information thus reducing the number of signs that need to be created
  • Requesting facility staff to sort waste materials when cleaning up meeting rooms
  • Supplying ecofriendly name badges and collecting and recycling participant’s name badges at the conclusion of the meeting
  • Ensuring any hard copies of materials are printed double-sided whenever the client agrees it is appropriate
  • Working with facilities to arrange for local recycling of conference materials and donation of leftover food
  • Reusing badge holders, binders, ribbons, and other materials whenever possible
  • Reviewing facility contracts and other documents to ensure the inclusion of sustainable initiatives programs
  • Requesting reusable service items and when feasible using garnishes and decorations that can be consumed or donated
  • Working with vendors to ensure that they have a sustainability program in place and that their staff is from the local area
  • Informing travelers of all local transportation options including bus routes, multi-use trails, shuttles, bike rentals, ride share services, and light rail
