PrimeGlobal was proudly named 2021 Sustainable Organization of the year by the International Accounting Bulletin. The association is passionate about promoting Environmental Social Responsibility (ESR) by supporting local environments, promoting diversity and assisting communities through our staff, member firms and wider stakeholders. PrimeGlobal has continued the proud tradition of creating sustainable events through the PrimeGlobal Planet initiative by reducing the carbon footprint of PrimeGlobal events. Through ESR initiatives, PrimeGlobal continues to support the environment and local communities, giving back to the cities we visit. 


Our Goals

Our Environmental Social Responsibility strategy is linked to the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) and focused on two main areas:

1) Through our PrimeGlobal Planet initiative we continue to pledge organizing green events and lessening the environmental footprint during our international conferences.

2) Through our Local Community Support initiatives we help local communities by donating food to homeless shelters, building wheelchairs for wounded veterans and supporting organizations that provide professional training and job placements for youth in underserved communities and much more.


Our ESR Partners

PrimeGlobal has partnered with organizations that provide care and support to local communities; from building prosthetic arms for those in need, to creating water filters to provide 1,500 people with clean water for 10 years. You can learn more about some of our Environmental Social Responsibility partners and the great work that they do by clicking on a profile below.

Sudara is an organization that offers living-wage opportunities to women in India who were victims of human trafficking.  Their CSR events offer the chance to choose a pair of pajama/lounge bottoms from a variety of beautiful patterns, made by women who escaped slavery. The hand-stitched garments come directly from Sudara, each pattern tells a unique story from a woman who is now free.Read more

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.

Producing green events goes beyond specific actions such as recycling, serving local/organic food or reducing printing. A 100% sustainable event incorporates a balanced approach to economic activity, environmental responsibility and social progress. They also require a series of specific actions in nine areas of event management: Accommodations, Audiovisual, Communications, Destination Selection, Exhibits, Food and Beverage, Meeting Venue, On-Site Office and Transportation.

Through responsible transport and accommodation we will reduce the carbon footprint of delegates and guests travelling to events. During the event our chefs will create menus utilizing seasonal products, which come from fair trade suppliers, incorporating food and beverage from other groups in-house to minimize waste. By supporting the local community and giving back to the most vulnerable people in society we hope to inspire others to give more.
