Inspired by its global corporate responsibility strategy, 'Travel with Purpose', 'Meet with Purpose' programme focuses on three essential pillars: Mindful Eating, Mindful Meeting and Mindful Being.

Mindful Eating is about offering a food and beverage experience that supports a healthier lifestyle and helps sustain engagement during meetings and events commented Chef Ridzuan Malek, Executive Chef at Hilton Petaling Jaya. "Drawing from today's dietary trends, food and beverage options favor local and seasonal ingredients while offering creativity in presentation which encourages planners to incorporate nutritionally balanced menus. When you go for a meeting, you see so many food products but with this concept, we now focus a lot on mindful and healthy eating, so that you are aware of what you eat. This is all based on healthy food items, which are locally sourced. We encourage everyone in using all his or her senses in choosing to eat food that is both satisfying and nourishing to their body."

Constance Lee, Assistant Director of Sales Groups, Conferences & Event spoke more about Mindful Meeting by commenting that clients today are becoming more environmentally savvy and additionally more conscious when holding meetings. Lee further added, "Being an environmentally conscious company, it's our responsibility to promote and offer options and practices that reduce the use of resources and waste production in the meetings and events setting. By June of this year,  Hilton Malaysia, will Say No to Plastic; plastic water bottles are replaced with glass bottles or pitchers and each delegate when attending a meeting will now receive recycled pens, notepads upon request."

Meet with Purpose offers the possibility to calculate the Carbon Footprint of the meeting with the LightStay Meeting Calculator. Hilton's approach to corporate responsibility and sustainability aims to deliver value to businesses, guests, franchise and business partners and communities.
