At The Westin Melbourne, we have worked to develop environmentally sustainable strategies for meetings and events to reduce our carbon footprint, protect the environment, and promote wellness. We understand that each event is different, and have placed substantial focus on understanding the life cycle of carbon emissions associated with a typical event at the hotel. First we calculate the carbon impact of your event based on various details, then we translate the impact into purchasable 'carbon credits'—after which we cooperate with a company that helps to invest these credits in projects aimed at providing long-term solutions to global warming.
