CONNECTING WITH LANGHAM HOSPITALITY GROUP

Since 1865, Langham has been hosting legendary events. Today, Langham has elevated the meeting experience to create events which are not only memorable, but also sustainable.

Launched across select properties, CONNECT Conferences offers planners the option to select sustainable meeting solutions which offset the environmental and social impact from their event.

Flexible options, from simply serving filtered water rather than bottled to creating banquet menus, which use locally grown organic ingredients, allows planners to create sustainable events tailored to their budget and preferences.

Langham holds the internationally accredited EarthCheck certification across the majority of its properties, making it one of the more sustainable international hospitality companies. It is this prestigious award that reinforces our commitment to environmental sustainability. Click here to find out more about EarthCheck certified hotels.

CREATING SUSTAINABLE CONFERENCES
CONNECT Conferences offer a range of sustainable initiatives which are categorised by accommodation, cuisine and services. All variables are nonrestrictive, so planners may select only those that are relevant to them.

CONNECT CONFERENCES ACCOMMODATION
Langham offers a number of options which alleviate the environmental impact from group accommodation. The following may be considered:
  • Participation in the "Guest Of The Earth" programme, which promotes reusing linen where possible to reduce water and energy consumption.
  • Opting to use fair-trade products as welcome amenities and for use in guestroom mini-bars.
CONNECT CONFERENCES CUISINE
When creating menus, a variety of cuisines and service options are available to help reduce the environmental impact, such as:
  • Selecting locally-grown and seasonal products to reduce the carbon emissions caused by transportation.
  • Requesting organic and vegetarian banquet menus, which minimizes pollution and the use of natural resources.
  • Opting for filtered water to reduce bottled wastage.
CONNECT CONFERENCES SERVICES
CONNECT Conferences offer a range of services to increase the sustainability of your event, including:
  • The opportunity to incorporate tailor-made activities into a schedule, which give back to the local community;
  • The availability of reusable items such as whiteboards, electronic signage, linen, dining ware and cutlery to minimise unnecessary waste;
  • Waste management and recycling services are automatically implemented on site by Langham Staff. Planners can also opt to place recycling bins in meeting rooms to engage attendees and create awareness for sustainability through this waste management exercise;
  • The opportunity to select energy efficient options, such as setting the air conditioner to a moderate temperature and maximising the use of natural light;
  • An online Carbon Emission and Carbon Saving Calculator, enables planners to find out the real environmental cost of an event. Planners can then select sustainable offerings that offset this.
