Sustainable Meeting Practices

The Westin Europa & Regina is committed to continually evaluating our operations in order to employ more environmentally friendly methods of providing the best service to our guests. Currently the hotel participates in green practices, such as:

Sustainable Meeting Services

Every aspect of your meeting, from the products to the services, has been crafted to enhance the overall sustainable experience.

  • Westin Clutter-Free Meetings - all notepads, pens and mints will be placed on a separate table, encouraging your participants to use only what is required and avoid waste.
  • We have a selection of either potted plants or organically grown flowers.
  • Environmentally friendly non-paper supplies.
  • Access to green transportation services.

Sustainable Food & Beverage Practices

In support of Starwood’s global sustainable Food & Beverage policy, we minimize the procurement of overharvested and endangered species, work with local vendors, and minimize waste.

  • The selection of food products used within the preparation of menus are local and seasonal.
  • We donate leftover food from your meeting.
  • Condiments in bulk dispensers to reduce waste.
  • Sustainable food options in meeting menu.
  • Use of recyclable food service containers for boxed lunches.

Paperless Meeting Planning

We provide electronic sales tools during the meeting planning process to conserve paper – including sales proposals, menu selection, rooming list creation, electronic floor plans. An added benefit, they also save your time.

The entire contracting process will be done electronically. This will avoid printing and wasting of paper. With our tool StarGroups meeting planners can create an individual website with an own URL for their event. Meeting attendants can book their rooms easily and environmentally friendly as well as get additional information on this website. Email and the usage of StarGroups will reduce the need to print or fax pages back and forth.

Meeting Impact Report

The Meetings Impact Report allows planners to view the environmental and social impact of their event from various prospectives. Sent via e-mail post-event, this report evaluates data related to your selected sustainable initiatives, energy and water consumption, waste management, sustainable food choices and socially responsible programs. As a member of the International Tourism Partnership (ITP), Starwood has integrated the Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative (HCMI) methodology into the MIR to calculate the carbon footprint of your meeting using your chosen property’s energy consumption for the rooms and meeting space utilized.

Make a Green Choice Program

The Westin Europa & Regina is proudly giving you the opportunity to "Make A Green Choice" by allowing you the option to conserve water, electricity, gas and chemicals. As part of our green initiatives program, we are offering a € 5 voucher to our restaurant or 500 Starwood Preferred Guest Starpoints® awarded at checkout for each night you decline housekeeping (except day of departure).

Conservation matters. Make A Green Choice.

Recycling

  • When using printed material, post-consumer recycled paper products are incorporated into your meeting and double-sided printing is available.
  • We provide recycling bins in all meeting spaces.
