Environmental Social Responsibility (ESR) at PrimeGlobal: Our latest campaigns

Business Opportunities
April 22, 2022

The theme for this year’s Earth Day is ‘Invest in Our Planet’ and at PrimeGlobal, we are committed to ESR by supporting the environment and local communities and promoting diversity.

We were also named Sustainable Organization of the Year 2021 by the International Accounting Bulletin (IAB) because we are passionate about promoting ESR

PrimeGlobal Planet

From carbon emissions to waste management, events have many impacts that can be significant for the environment. We recognize these impacts and are striving to create meetings that leave a positive impact in the communities where our meetings are being held. In an effort to produce meetings that are more sensitive to the environment, we introduced the PrimeGlobal Planet initiative, created to lessen the environmental footprint in the cities we visit.

Plastic Pirates in Budapest

At our 2022 Technical Conference in Budapest, we supported a local environmental group called the Hungarian Plastic Pirates. The group collects a massive 8.8 tons of plastic each year, which is washed down the Tisza River in the spring floods. At our conference, we encouraged all our delegates to be a ‘PG Plastic Pirate’ by using their reusable bottle from 24 Bottles and filling them up at the water stations throughout the conference. 

This PrimeGlobal Planet initiative supports the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) 13 - Climate Action and SDG 14 - Life Below Water.

“Operation Take Charge” at the Women's Leadership Summit in Chicago

We’ve partnered with Dress for Success, a global organization whose vision is a world where women do not live in poverty and where all women are financially independent and are treated with dignity and respect. We are asking our delegates to our Women's Leadership Summit in May to bring a gently-used blouse or jacket to the conference, which will be donated to the Chicago Chapter of Dress for Success. 

These donations will help furnish another woman with the confidence to enter or return to the workplace, make a great impression and land a job that could change her life. There is real power in women helping women “Take Charge”.

This PrimeGlobal Planet initiative supports the UN SDG 5 – Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls and UN SDG 8 – Decent work & economic growth.
