Exclusive Collection, the UK’s first B Corp certified hotel brand, has launched a new ESG initiative to help corporate and agency planners better understand the impact of their events on people and the planet.
For meeting and events that take place at one of the collection’s hotels in March 2024, Exclusive Collection, through its partnership with event:decision, will sponsor formalised reporting and impacts of confirmed client events.
The MICE focused drive coincides with March being B Corp Month, a month where B Corps across the globe showcase how and why they are impacting, transforming and using business as a force for good.
Exclusive Collection partnered with event:decision in 2022 to heighten sustainable processes, metrics, and best practices for events hosted at its hotels. The partnership also reinforces Exclusive’s B Corp certification which already looks at measurement and improvement around the organisation’s outlook towards the planet, its people, and its purpose.
Stephanie Hall, group sales and marketing director for Exclusive Collection, said: “We’re very proud to be part of the B Corp movement. It’s a certification that’s so important as event organisers look for venues that go beyond CSR. And with March being B Corp month it’s a pertinent time for us to encourage planners to look at their impact and for us to potentially educate new organisers and our colleagues if and where we can.”
Matt Grey from event:decision, added: “Exclusive Collection is at the fore of ESG. It’s no mean feat being a B Corp in one venue let alone several. We hope to see new faces taking up their MICE B Corp Month offer and to showing the far-reaching implications and impacts of being a B Corp host.”
