Corporate Social Responsibility in Naples and Marco Island

Wildtiere im Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge

Zwei Rehe durchstreifen das Naturschutzgebiet in Immokalee.

Today's companies want meetings that help fulfill their social responsibility initiatives and stimulate more productive teamwork – objectives that not only help their bottom line, but also provide rewarding experiences for their employees and allow their organization to give back to the community. The Ritz-Carlton's Volunteaming program rises to the occasion on both counts, with the additional benefit of being earth-friendly.

Offered at the Ritz-Carlton, Naples and the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples, Volunteaming is the newest volunteer offering under the Community Footprint social responsibility program and is available for groups. The mission of these green activities is to develop an ecological perspective and foster community involvement through experiential learning, teamwork, and engagement in building a sustainable environment.

Here are some of the fun ways your group can go green and grow as a team with Ritz-Carlton's Volunteaming:

Help protect one of the most endangered species in the world

Groups journey to the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge, located deep in the Western Everglades, to visit the home of the Florida panther. Only about 100 remain in the wilds of Southwest Florida. Here guests assist in the collection of video data of panthers, captured by wildlife cameras on the refuge, and report that data to biologists and scientists who study panthers as part of their work to save this magnificent cat from extinction.

Save planet Earth

This fun activity is similar to a scavenger hunt, only the team members are searching for a way to help planet Earth. One example of this is collecting trash on the beach and then creating a sculpture from the trash compiled. The team with the tallest sculpture wins.

Build a cat-climbing tower

This team building activity is great for animal lovers. Groups break into teams and see which team can assemble their cat-climbing tower the quickest. The towers are donated to the local Humane Society.

Build a bike for charity

Give your group's minds and spirits a boost with this exciting event. Groups break into teams and see which team can adventure through the obstacles to earn bike pieces. The teams then assemble their bikes within the time limit. The finished bikes are given to local charities or to a charity of your group's choice.

In addition to these exciting Volunteaming options, the Ritz-Carlton will donate 10 percent of the total guest room revenue generated from your group equally between a charity of your choice and The Ritz-Carlton Community Footprints Fund.

Both the Ritz-Carlton, Naples and the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples have received the official Green Lodging designation by the state of Florida's Department of Environmental Protection, a program that encourages lodging facilities to protect and conserve Florida's natural resources. It's a testament of their conviction to be good environmental stewards and to offer meeting and convention guests opportunities to execute successful, productive, earth-friendly meetings.
