Green meetings are smart meetings. And today, smart and environmentally friendly offerings are shifting from a trend to an expectation. As a meetings destination, Park City has made North America’s most ambitious climate goals: to be net-zero carbon and run on 100% renewable electricity for city operations by 2022, and for the whole community by 2032.
As you begin to plan for your next green meeting, take a look at our eco-friendly transportation, sustainable hotels & resorts, sample itineraries with outdoor group activities, and a brief history of our environmental responsibility.
One of the most attractive aspects of our town is that groups can have a car-free getaway when they visit. Frequent shuttles from Salt Lake City International Airport and abundant in-town resources including a free bus and trolley system, hotel shuttles, robust Uber, Lyft and taxi offerings mean you can leave the driving to us.
Fueled by bio-diesel and our brand new electric buses, Park City's free bus system will take your groups all over the town. Ride along as you explore Historic Main Street, Kimball Junction, North of Main, Quarry Village, Deer Valley Resort, Park City Mountain, or the Utah Olympic Park for a day of group activities, shopping and dining.
Park City is home to numerous green and sustainable hotels and resorts. Treasure Mountain Inn in Park City has been awarded as the Utah Business “Recycler of the Year” award, twice. TripAdvisor has implemented their GreenLeaders Program, which showcases Park City’s eco-friendly hotels and resorts that are all committed to green practices:
