The recently refurbished The Langham, Hong Kong is offering eco-aware and socially conscious meeting organisers the chance to offset the environmental and social impact of their events. Initiatives that are part of the hotel's CONNECT Conference programme include reusing bed linen, placing recycling bins in meeting spaces and opting to use energy-efficient settings.
On the culinary front, the option to swap bottled water for filtered water cuts down dramatically on waste while tailored menus that utilise locally-grown and seasonal produce and entirely organic and vegetarian banquet menus cut down on carbon emissions.
On top of impact-reducing services, the hotel also offers a carbon footprint calculator. Simply select the number of guests, the number of nights they will stay, the number of meeting days and the particular Langham location you will visit, and the amount of CO2 your event will consume will be calculated. You can then choose to offset that amount by supporting various campaigns including reforestation and clean energy projects.
The Langham, Hong Kong is located in bustling Tsim Sha Tsui and offers up to 490 square metres of meeting space.
