Hyatt Fisherman's Wharf Launches "Meet & Be Green"

 Hyatt at Fisherman's Wharf has just launched Meet and Be Green, a new program that encourages guests and planners to make green choices for their meetings. In order to Meet and Be Green at Hyatt at Fisherman's Wharf, planners and meeting attendees will pledge to take these ten steps to "go green" during their meeting:

- Recycle during the meeting
- Use products with 100% recycled content
- Print materials locally
- Minimize shipping
- Rather than setting materials at every seat, place meeting materials, such as handouts, notepads, pens, etc., in a central location so attendees can take as needed
- Maintain room temperatures at an appropriate level
- Eliminate disposable water bottles
- Minimize use of other disposable products such as plates, cups, napkins, and utensils
- Select locally grown seasonal foods when planning the menu
- Plan ahead for the meeting to make it easier and more economical to keep the meeting green

Dedicated meeting planners at Hyatt at Fisherman's Wharf will help source products with 100% recycled content, find local suppliers, and maximize efforts to reduce waste to create a meeting experience that exceeds expectations and helps the environment at the same time.

For new meetings booked by December 30, 2010, and held by March 31, 2011, groups participating in the Meet and Be Green program at Hyatt at Fisherman's Wharf will be eligible for a 3% rebate on qualifying charges on the master bill. Meet and Be Green is one of the latest additions to Great Happens, Hyatt's ongoing campaign to emphasize the power and importance of in-person meetings.

Meet and Be Green is one part of Hyatt's larger pledge to conserve energy, minimize waste and create responsible, sustainable corporate practices to care for the earth and guests. By empowering guests to do the same, Hyatt and its planners can help minimize the environmental impact of meetings.
