Sustainability Initiatives

One of ULI’s Mission Priorities is developing a path to Net Zero. Additionally, sustainability is of utmost importance while at this year’s Fall Meeting — and beyond.

In the spirit of reducing our carbon footprint, we have committed to ensuring networking lunches and other large meals utilize locally sourced produce and sustainable mushrooms. Food packaging is compostable, as are bamboo plates and silverware. Provided water comes in a box made of compostable packaging. We will also use reusable glass/China.

Our meeting materials and signage are created from recyclable materials. ULI is also committed to keeping materials from year to year and reusing signage for other meetings. Paper printing will be eliminated by moving more resources to the ULI App. We have also done away with tent card printing.

Finally, we aim to streamline hotel shuttle routes and group transportation. We have contracted with local hotels that are walkable or located along already existing shuttle routes.

We appreciate your continued participation in ULI’s dedicated sustainability initiatives at the ULI Meetings and beyond.
