Sign the pledge

Pledge your commitment

As part of our #20PercentLess initiative, we're asking organisations to commit to eliminating single-use plastic by a minimum of 20% each year for the next five years.

Whether you are a chain of hotels or conference centres, an independent hotel or conference centre, a sporting stadium, a castle, a university venue, a supplier, a booking agent in fact whichever space you occupy within our massive industry, the mia is asking the sector to sign up to the pledge.

Choosing your own timeframe of one, two, three, four or five years, we are asking you to eliminate singe-use plastic from your business by 2025 by pledging to:

  • Remove, in the first year of your commitment, plastic bottles, plastic pens, plastic stirrers, plastic cups and glasses and pledge to remove plastic cutlery form your business
  • Focus on elimination, reduction and re-use rather than simply substituting single-use plastic items such as those made of bioplastic
  • Be innovative and openminded to alternative solutions but consider the full lifecycle of a product, including its disposal before deploying it, to ensure any alternatives are sustainable and do not create unintended negative effects
  • Not give away any promotional items made of single-use plastic
  • Commit to your own organisational target and measure your progress
  • Nominate a champion within your business to help achieve your objectives
  • Explore the commercial benefits of not using single-use plastics
  • Influence your supply chain
  • Influence and educate your internal teams and your customers to not use single-use plastic products within your business
