Meetings and events at The Ritz-Carlton are carefully designed to create an unparalleled guest experience while protecting our natural resources. Together with our property-based Ritz-Carlton Environmental Action Conservation Teams (REACT) you and your attendees can support our efforts to reduce our environmental imprint and make a meaningful difference. Within our hotels, we reduce energy and water usage, offer a linen and terry reuse program, and utilize environmentally preferable cleaning products. Our meeting venues support a sustainable future by offering recycled paper products and pens, water service options, organic and local food and sustainable seafood options.
VolunTeaming is now offered under The Ritz-Carlton social responsibility program, Community Footprints. Transcending traditional group activities, VolunTeaming combines teambuilding with volunteer activities that create lasting memories for the participants. Recognizing that many groups want their teambuilding time to make a meaningful contribution, these programs enable guests to be a force for good and feel personally connected to the place that they visit.
Fight Against Hunger
The mission of "Banco Alimentar," part of the European Federation of Food Banks, to give each person access to a sufficient and balanced diet. Group volunteers can help by working together to categorize and distribute food to charitable institutions and groups that support families in need. This meaningful and socially responsible activity allows guests to enjoy a great sense of accomplishment and collaboration as they provide food for the community’s economically challenged.
Please contact your meetings and special events professional for details on how VolunTeaming activities can be matched to group.
