Our mission is to create and promote innovative, strategic sustainability solutions which enhance the capacity of businesses to ensure their operations respect the biological capacity of the earth.
In 2005, Ginny Stratton, now Principal of Strategin Solutions, was tasked with applying her knowledge and passion for sustainability to the meetings and events industry. She was quick to recognize the importance of integrating environmental, social, and economic considerations into the event planning and management process. Doing so enabled responsible resource consumption, waste minimization and management, climate change mitigation and the creation of legacy impacts through inspiring others to put sustainability into action.
Concrete results achieved through her efforts compelled Ginny to continue working toward enhancing the positive impacts of meetings and events, leading her to found Strategin Solutions in 2007. Since its inception, Strategin Solutions has been involved in several high profile event sustainability management projects internationally and hosted educational sessions at several events across North America.
