Conscious Capitalism is an organization built on the idea that business can be about more than profit. To help the Los Angeles chapter align our values around sustainability and ethical business, Future Friendly Events is working closely with our local board members to guide us through the process.
Future Friendly Events helped us craft practical and cost-effective sustainable event goals. As we take action to reach these goals, our partner is making it easy for us to walk our talk. As a result, we expect that the 2018 Purpose X Profit conference in LA will be one of our most sustainable events to date.
What we will accomplish through this partnership:
- Achieve carbon neutrality for the event: We are measuring our carbon footprint, identifying emission reduction opportunities, and purchasing verified carbon offsets.
- Effectively minimizing our waste: Working with the venue, our vendors, and our attendees to pursue a zero waste event.
- Make our marketplace greener: Developing guidelines for participating brands to help them align with our event sustainability goals.
CCLA selected to partner with Neuehouse as our event venue because of their commitment to sustainability. Neuehouse has achieved LEED Gold for Core & Shell. LEED is a premier sustainability standard for buildings and the Gold standing is a high achievement considering the building was built in 1938.
Neuehouse has a rooftop beehive that supports the environment by helping to stabilize the bee population. As well, the hive contributes to the local pollination and ecosystem.
Neuehouse composts all event food waste in-house.
All Neuehouse produce is sourced from LA Specialty, a third party vendor dedicated to locating the most local and organic produce. All seafood comes from Open Ocean Pen Farms and all animal proteins are sourced from local California ranches.
For brands committed to creating a more sustainable and inclusive economy, hosting a more sustainable event is an important opportunity to demonstrate that commitment. We recommend partnering with Future Friendly Events for simple, cost-effective solutions
