ISTAT’s Commitment to Sustainability

Sustainability remains at the forefront of all ISTAT activities and discussions with the adoption of sustainable practices promoted and encouraged as the aviation industry works toward a low carbon future.

ISTAT is working closely with the ISTAT venues and vendors to adopt sustainable practices.

What ISTAT is doing at events: 

  • Eliminating printed materials and offering a conference app for communications.
  • Providing the “meal of the day” for attendee’s lunches to optimize ingredients and reduce food waste.
  • No individual pads, pens, candies, etc, instead placed in each meeting room to reduce waste and plastic use.
  • ​Meeting room temperatures will stay consistent to reduce energy use.
  • Collecting and recycling plastic badge holders.
  • All vendor rentals for furniture, floral, and deliveries are locally based, eliminating delivery emissions.
  • Sourcing energy efficient vehicles for attendee transportation and delivery of equipment.
  • Hired buses for transportation are state-of-the-art vehicles which assist in reducing emissions and comply with the latest environmental policies and legislation. (Buses will be turned off when not in sure to save on carbon footprint; no idling.)
  • Eliminating single use plastic and using recyclable materials when possible.
  • For additional information or questions on sustainability efforts at ISTAT, please contact

ISTAT carefully selects venues and vendors that adopt sustainable practices for its events.

Do Your Part to Support Sustainability

We need your help to work toward a low-carbon future. There are many ways you can support sustainable practices while attending an ISTAT event:

  • Pack light and help reduce airline emissions.
  • Use mobile apps and online platforms to check into your airline and Hilton properties as well as navigate your ISTAT event.
  • Bring your own reusable water bottle instead of plastic water bottles.
  • Choose locally sourced, plant-based foods or more veggies where available.
  • Leave the soap in your hotel bathroom to be recycled.
  • Use the recycle bins in your guestroom and throughout the hotel.
  • When possible, ride-share with colleagues, request hybrids, EVs or sedans rather than gas-fueled taxis, rental cars or SUVs or consider using public transportation or walking.
