Sustainability Statement

In the heart of one of the world’s most sustainability-minded cities, the Vancouver Convention Centre stands as a benchmark venue. Renowned for its green initiatives, including a green roof and LEED Platinum certification, the venue embodies the city’s commitment to environmental responsibility. Choosing Vancouver and the Convention Centre for the 2024 Champions Retreat was a natural decision, aligning with our sustainability goals and core values.

Grouse Mountain, nestled amid breathtaking natural surroundings, employs eco-friendly practices and a commitment to wildlife conservation. The resort’s dedication to renewable energy sources and responsible land use showcases its commitment to environmental stewardship.

To further enhance the Retreat’s commitment to sustainability, we’ve joined forces with TripZero (a Certified B Corp) to purchase one Certified Carbon Offset for every tonne of CO2 produced by Champions Retreat attendees’ travel. These projects help fund renewable energy, methane reduction, and forestry projects that benefit local communities. As much as possible, we encourage our attendees to choose a less carbon-intensive way of arriving to and getting around the event, such as by train or public transportation, bicycle, or even on foot.

In collaboration with Greener by Default, Champions Retreat takes sustainability a step further. By making plant-based food the default option, we’re not only aligning with carbon reduction goals but also promoting healthier choices. This strategy allows us to reduce our carbon footprint and improve inclusivity, all while preserving freedom of choice by providing options for those who prefer meat and dairy.

Our dedication extends beyond cuisine to the very materials used at the event. Where possible, printing occurs on sustainable substrates, and we’ve diligently worked to eliminate or reduce single-use items. Stay tuned for more details as we continue our journey towards hosting events that prioritize environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and attendee well-being.

Your health and safety are important to us, and we are proud that the key decisions we made at the last Retreat led to a safe and successful Champions Retreat in 2022. We continue to monitor COVID-19 and other health developments across the globe and will follow health safety guidelines from the WHO, CDC, Health Canada as well as applicable federal, provincial, and municipal laws.

While face masks are no longer mandatory in indoor public spaces, guests are welcome to wear a face mask based on their individual comfort level, particularly in meetings. We invite you to consider safe distancing to reduce the chance of spread. Masks will be available at the information desk for anyone who requires one.

Hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout Champion Retreat venues.

The Vancouver Convention Center holds the GBAC STAR™ accreditation, demonstrating a commitment to health and safety. Additionally, the facility has received the National Air Filtration Association’s Clean Air Award for maintaining a clean and healthy indoor environment.
