Delegate Satchels: We no longer offer delegate satchels for in-house conferences. All sponsors and funders are promoted electronically and support our decision to reduce hardcopy paper items, therefore the delegate satchel was no longer required and in return means less items contributing to landfill.
Lanyards: We are using the last of our recycled lanyards and will be moving towards eco-friendly bamboo fibre lanyards for all ASHM run conferences.
Name badges: We provide recyclable name badges without a plastic pouch
Catering: We monitor final delegate numbers for an accurate forecast of catering requirements in order to avoid waste
Other organisations that allow you to offset your CO2:
Committee Meetings and Site Visits: We endeavour to minimise travel for planning the conferences through the use of teleconferences meetings or skype for business. This removes the need to organise face to-face meetings and to only hold meetings when necessary.
