How Meetingselect supports the global goals for sustainable development 

Sustainability is not just a buzzword. It is a vital concept that guides our actions and decisions. It means using our natural resources to meet our needs today without compromising the needs of future generations. It also means balancing three key economic, environmental, and social dimensions. These dimensions correspond to the 17 global goals for sustainable development. that the UN member states adopted in 2015. These goals are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure peace and prosperity for all. Here’s how Meetingselect supports these goals through our work:



Meeting for Trees program

We believe in the power of innovation to solve environmental challenges. That’s why we collaborate with our partners and clients to reduce the carbon footprint of meetings and events. One of our initiatives is the Meeting for Trees program, which aims to offset carbon emissions by planting trees. We have been supporting Trees for All, a foundation that restores forests and landscapes worldwide, since 2022. We are committed to continuing our support until 2026 and beyond.

Carbon footprint calculator tool

We want to empower you to make informed choices about your meetings and events. That’s why we provide our embedded carbon footprint calculator tool when you book on the Meetingselect platform. This tool helps you estimate the carbon impact of your event and balance it by planting trees. You can also use our smart platform to find and compare green venues, suppliers, and services that suit your needs and preferences. Our platform helps you plan and manage your event to minimize its environmental impact and maximize its positive outcomes.
