Sustainable Meetings

This is an opportunity for your attendees to give something back to the local community whilst team building during their hosted meeting.  We will assist you by providing you with a turnkey package that fully outlines a local Volunteer program.

Alternatively your organisation can opt to integrate Starwood’s ‘Check Out for Children’ program into the total billing of the event by adding an additional 1€ per participant to the bill. Check Out for Children is an alliance between UNICEF and Starwood Hotels & Resorts in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia–Pacific.

Check Out for Children is simple and effective. Guests at Starwood Hotels are invited to add €1 to their bill upon check out, as a donation to UNICEF. In 2015, UNICEF and Starwood Hotels & Resorts celebrated 20 years of their Check Out for Children partnership and thank guests and employees who together have raised over $35 million to help UNICEF improve the lives of more than 4.5 million children.

Meeting Impact Report
The Meeting Impact Report (MIR) is Starwood's tool by which we calculate your company's carbon footprint from your event at The Westin Dragonara Resort.Through the MIR, The Westin Dragonara Resort abides by the Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative methodology, a measuring system developed by an industry working group of hotel companies.Meeting planners can use the MIR to fulfill a company's request for their meeting's environmental footprint.
Make a Great Choice
The Make a Green Choice provides stay-over guests with the daily opportunity to decline housekeeping services.In recognition for participating, guests can reward themselves with a choice of a F&B credit at participating hotel food and beverage venues, SPG Points or allow us to donate these points to UNICEFs environmental work for children on their behalf.You as the Meeting planner can encourage your participants to opt into this program individually. Foregoing housekeeping for one night can mean significant savings in energy consumption thereby reducing the environmental impact of the meeting.  This program is a readily available option to integrate sustainability into your program.
