Going green: Doing our part for the environment
According to MeetGreen’s research, the average conference attendee produces over 170 kilograms of CO2 emissions per day. A three-day conference for 1000 people creates 5670 kilograms of waste, over half of which will go directly to landfill.
Here are ways we can make a change.

What CPS is doing:

  • We selected the Hyatt Regency Vancouver that promotes sustainable meeting and travel practices.
  • The city of Vancouver provides great public transportation links.
  • We’ve partnered with Destination Vancouver to work on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives.
  • Our program and registration is only available digitally through the conference website.
  • The mobile app provides access to session handouts and reduces paper.
  • Signage is either digital or reusable.
  • We’re avoiding bottled water by providing water stations.
  • The Hyatt Regency Vancouver uses locally sources food options, including plant based and plant forward menu items. Our food donating partner is Vancouver Food Runners.
  • Delegate name tags, badge-holders and bags are from recycled materials.
  • Recycling bins are provided in hotel meeting rooms.
  • Exhibitors are encouraged to bring fewer printed or other “disposable” materials onsite.

What you can do:

  • Turn off lights and television when leaving your hotel room.
  • Opt to reuse linen and towels.
  • Use public transportation instead of taxis.
  • Bring your own mug/cup/bottles.
  • Choose not to receive a delegate bag.
  • Use the recycling bins provided.
