The Saint-Hyacinthe Convention Center – Eco-Responsibility Actions

1 May 2018

 

If you would like to hold a convention outside of the major population centres and are looking for a location that practices sustainable development, the Saint-Hyacinthe Convention Centre is a very interesting option to consider.

The team at the Centre supports its clients in the organisation of eco-responsible events via its food service offer. You will have access to sustainable dishes or compostable or recyclable containers. They sort compostable and recyclable matter in the kitchen and on clearing of tables, they use water in pitchers rather than bottled water. Much of the food is served bulk rather than in individual portions. The menu uses many local products and the food surplus is offered to local community organisations.

Additionally, thanks to agreements with recognised organisations, the Convention Centre can offset the environmental footprint of events for organisers.
