Environmental and social responsibilities
We are committed to decarbonizing the event industry one event at a time. Along with our sustainable business events and practices, we ensure social and ecological standards within our company. We take our social responsibility seriously and try to give back whenever we can or a good opportunity presents itself. This is reflected in the numerous charitable activities we join regionally and internationally.
What we do...
We have partnered with Plan A so that we can account for and offset direct and indirect carbon emissions from your virtual events. You can find the list of the projects we support through Plan A to compensate for our emissions here. We've also partnered with tree-plant and they plant trees for every review or challenge we do.
This past year, we have sent ambulances filled with medical needs to Poland to support those suffering from the war in Ukraine with a 50,000€ donation. In 2021, MEETYOO has supported the Aashita Orphanage, the Batu Bambu Kids Foundation, the "Forest Pirates" of the German Children's Cancer Foundation, the Hugo Tempelman Foundation, the Johann-Peter-Hebel-Heim, the Ocean Blue Project, the SOS Children's Village in Vorpommern, and the Bartali School in Israel with a Christmas donation of 75,000€.
Protected animal sponsorship
As a company with its HQ in Berlin, it is a matter of the heart to help out institutions of our beautiful city. Because of this, MEETYOO took on an animal sponsorship to support the Berlin Zoo. In 2021 we held a company-wide poll to decide on an animal which we wanted to sponsor and support with donations. The collective choice fell on the adorable, spotted African wild dog.
"Lycaon pictus" means "painted dog" – this scientific name makes sense when you look at the speckled coats of African wild dogs. They also make for a cute company mascot.
Responsible and mindful workplace
We practice what we preach in our customer interactions and within our company. This is why we believe that it’s important to provide all our employees with the basis for a mindful and ecologically friendly work environment. We send online invoices to our customers to save paper and much more. We also take our DEI responsibilities seriously by entering challenges and providing training. Additionaly, we encourage our employee to take care of their mental health with discussions on self-esteem, flexible work hours, and much more.
Health and sports
Yearly company run and city cycling: We like to make sure to provide our employees with fun challenges and inspiration to stay fit. This is why we join various running/cycling/walking challenges and for every kilometer completed, we donate to a relevant organization. This fall, we will be donating to the reforestation of German forests after the devastating fires over the summer.
Sponsoring a good cause
Last year, we started a #TechforGood campaign, inviting organizations around the world to enter for a chance to host a free virtual event around the topic of sustainability. The 2022 winner was Africa Green Tec who's hosting researchers, speakers, and politicians to discuss how the African continent can become a role model in addressing today's challenges.
