Meetings Blog - Downtown Victoria Hotel
By hosting meetings with us, you ensure that your meeting is 100% carbon neutral and set up to achieve zero-waste. Inn at Laurel Point was the first hotel in British Columbia to make the commitment to being carbon neutral. We support local carbon reduction programs, including the Cowichan Bio-Diesel Co-Op, by purchasing all our offsets locally.
Living on the beautiful West Coast, with the ocean and mountains as our neighbours, the environment has an impact on our daily lives. Here at Inn at Laurel Point, we don’t take our natural surroundings for granted. Our close proximity to the water enables us to interact with the ocean inhabitants. From otters, to sea-birds, to whales, we are constantly reminded of our wild neighbours. This is one of the many reasons that we here, at Inn at Laurel Point, ensure we are as environmentally friendly as we can be, and leave as minimal a carbon footprint as possible.
Our Inn places strong emphasis on our community and we commit to doing all we can to benefit people and businesses in Victoria, and Vancouver Island. By partnering with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity Victoria, the United Way, Disaster Aid Canada and the Canadian Cancer Society, we show our dedication to helping the people and societies around us, fostering the best possible community we can. As social enterprise we are dedicated to maintaining our great hotel and contributing locally. Our profits are invested into our hotel first, our colleagues second, and thirdly, into our Vancouver Island community.
By booking your meetings with us, you will not only experience the beauty that is Inn at Laurel Point, you will feel good about your choice. Think of it as eating your favourite cake, and not having to worry about the calories.
