We are working with Trip Zero to offset attendees’ travel footprints through the purchase of Certified Carbon Offsets. These offsets finance renewable energy, methane reduction, and forestry projects that reduce atmospheric carbon. In turn, they render your trip carbon-neutral and benefit local communities. We are also working with Greener by Default to make plant-based food the default for Champions Retreat, while giving diners the choice to opt into meat and dairy. This strategy allows us to meet carbon reduction goals, save on food costs, and improve health and inclusivity – all while preserving freedom of choice. Printing, where possible, takes place on sustainable substrates, and we’ve taken every effort to eliminate or reduce single-use items. Stay tuned for more detail on our impact after the Retreat!
