Carbon Offsetting for conferences, meetings & events
Is corporate responsibility at the heart of your
Do your bit when it comes to green meetings and minimise your
impact on our world from as little as 14p per day delegate.
QHotels are delighted to give you the opportunity to take part
in a carbon offsetting initiative with your conferences, meetings
and events. This involves a small contribution per delegate towards
the initiative as follows:
Day Delegate - 14p
24hr Delegate - 40p
What is carbon offsetting?
Your conference can impact the environment simply by using the air
conditioning during your event or even just by using electricity
while you are at the hotel. Carbon offsetting balances the carbon
emissions produced by an activity with equivalent reductions in
carbon emissions elsewhere. These reductions are achieved through
investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency or reforestation
projects in the developing world, that would not have been possible
without the finance generated by the sale of carbon offset
Where does the contribution go?
We have teamed up with Carbon Clear (find out more about Carbon
Clear HERE), a world-leader in carbon management. Carbon Clear then
use the contribution to put towards projects that have a positive
impact on the environment.
What initiative will you be contributing
All contributions made through QHotels will go towards the Kibale
National Park Reforestation in Uganda. The project contributes to
climate change mitigation by sequestering greenhouse gases in
existing forest sinks and increasing natural tree cover, through
the planting of indigenous trees species and assisted natural
regeneration of existing forest.
How do you take part?
We have added a tick box on to our online enquiry form, so if you
wish to take part in this fantastic cause, simply tick the box upon
initial enquiry. We will then issue your proposal with the total
contribution highlighted separately on the final invoice. Taking
part in the scheme allows you to negate carbon emissions produced
by your delegates when travelling to a conference, meeting or event
at QHotels as well as during their stay with us.
