Earth-Friendly Events in Paradise

Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort Port Douglas, hailed as a frontrunner in sustainable tourism, offers meeting planners the opportunity to minimize environmental impact and connect in nature.

Located in Australia’s first Eco-Certified destination and nestled between two UNESCO World-Heritage wonders, the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort Port Douglas understands the importance of eco-friendly operations. Widely acknowledged as a leader in sustainable tourism, the resort has launched an Earth-Friendly Events program that provides organisers with resources that allow for environmentally conscious planning and decision-making.

From corporate events that cater for 1,000 to intimate incentives for a select view, an Earth Friendly Event minimizes environmental footprint while maximizing the opportunity to connect with and within nature. During the day, “Earth-Friendly” delegate packages offer linen-less tables, Vestal water stations, recycled meeting materials and meeting break menus that feature locally-sourced, zero-waste ingredients. Beyond the boardroom, break-out sessions on Four Mile Lawn and cocktail parties on Mirage Island are a breath of fresh air, while eco-friendly day-time excursions into the Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef are immersive and unforgettable.

Delegates can also explore a range of initiatives that connect them to the local community, including the resort’s own Marriott Good Travel marine conservation program and a rum masterclass that explores the region’s historical connection with sugarcane.

The foundation for Earth Friendly Events has long been in place at the Sheraton Port Douglas. From meticulous water conservation practices and robust waste reduction efforts, to proactive local food sourcing standards and plastic elimination programs, the resort is a champion of sustainability. The Earth Friendly Events program provides planners the opportunity to manage the impact of their event in a direct and meaningful way.
