Carbon Neutral Events
Events create positive momentum in industries and form personal relationships with colleagues. Events also have a significant opportunity to show leadership in decarbonization and responsible business practices.
By hosting a carbon neutral event, attendees, investors, and other event stakeholders can feel better about attending and supporting an event that is operating in a responsible way.
Synergy's Carbon Neutral Events offer a way to take responsibility for the environmental impact of your event, focus on green event practices, and invest in the green economy.
By purchasing carbon offsets, your event can support forest conservation and clean technology projects that would not otherwise be financially possible.

Inn at Laurel Point
In partnership with Inn at Laurel Point, Synergy helped develop a Carbon-Neutral Events program to help event planners calculate their carbon footprint and offset travel and food-related emissions. When the meeting, event or conference concludes, the event planners will be provided with a certificate of recognition and logo to certify their commitment to carbon neutrality and climate action.
Victoria Conference Centre
The Victoria Conference Centre (VCC) is a carbon neutral conference facility in the heart of Victoria, BC. From energy-efficiency to water conservation and waste management, the VCC is an ideal place to host low-impact eco-friendly meetings and events. Synergy worked with the VCC to develop a Green Events Guide to support event planners host low-impact events.
