CAMPAIGN: BSR Conference 2014: Transparency and Transformation

CONTENT: Blog

For more than two decades, the BSR Conference has brought together more 1,000 leaders each year to discuss the most pressing sustainable business issues of the day. This November in New York, we’ll explore the twin themes of Transparency and Transformation.

Every year, we strive to make the Conference as sustainable as possible. By investing in these efforts, we hope that the Conference demonstrates BSR’s commitment to environmental sustainability. 

Transportation

  • The Conference venue was chosen so that attendees do not need to use ground transportation to get to the sessions.
  • BSR will offset 100 percent of the carbon emissions generated by travel and facility use during the Conference.
  • Attendees are encouraged to choose ground transportation options that minimize their carbon footprint, such as mass transit, rail service, and car-sharing or shuttle services.

Guest Accommodations

  • Housekeeping will leave soaps and toiletries that attendees have partially used in their rooms instead of replacing them each day.
  • Hotel staff is instructed to turn down the heat/air-conditioning, shut drapes, and turn off the lights when rooms are vacant.
  • A towel and sheet reuse program is in place for all sleeping rooms.
  • Recycling bins for glass, plastic, metal, and paper will be available on all lodging floors.

Join us at the BSR Conference 2014, in New York November 4-6, to discover how transformative technologies, business models, and financial valuations can produce rapid progress on the road to a more just and sustainable future. Register by June 27 for the best rates
