Sustainable Meetings

Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has been setting the stage for important meetings for more than a century.  The formula for the ideal business meeting venue is equal parts must-have technology, customized catering options and exciting outings to reenergize participants. Add a dash of environmental awareness  and save the planet while achieving your business goals.


Our Environmental Mission

For more than 25 years, Fairmont has been an environmental leader among eco-friendly hotels. As one of the first luxury hotel brands to achieve emission reduction targets, we embrace sustainability initiatives developed by Fairmont. We believe it is our privilege to enhance genuine experiences and promote a rich cultural exchange within our communities by ensuring long-term sustainability and stewardship of our planet. From rooftop bee hotels to innovative water-reduction techniques, we’re proud to be recognized as having one of the most comprehensive eco-friendly programs in the North American hotel industry.
