Sustainable Meeting Solutions
The Langham Hotels and Resorts has elevated the meeting experience to create events which are not only memorable, but also sustainable.
Launched across selected properties, CONNECT Conferences offers a range of sustainable initiatives categorised by accommodation, cuisine and services, which allow planners to select sustainable options when planning any meeting or events. Each of these options is selected specifically to offset the potential environmental or social impact of any meeting or event. All variables are nonrestrictive, so planners may select only those tailored to their budget and preferences.
The Langham Hotels and Resorts also holds the internationally accredited EarthCheck certification across the majority of its properties, making it one of the more sustainable international hospitality companies. This prestigious award reinforces our commitment to environmental sustainability. Click here to find out more about EarthCheck certified hotels and sustainability programmes.
