NAJIT’s Green Initiative: Promoting Sustainability at Our Annual Conference


At NAJIT, we are committed to making a positive impact not only in the field of interpretation and translation but also on the world around us. That’s why we are excited to announce our latest endeavor: the NAJIT Green Initiative. This initiative focuses on promoting sustainability and reducing our environmental footprint, starting with our upcoming conference.

What is the NAJIT Green Initiative?

The NAJIT Green Initiative is a concerted effort to minimize waste and promote eco-friendly practices at our conference. As part of this initiative, we are implementing several changes to reduce single-use plastics and disposable items.

Key Features of the Initiative:

  1. Elimination of Disposable Items: We will not be providing disposable cups, plates, or utensils at the conference venue. Instead, we encourage attendees to bring their own reusable items or utilize the provided washable dishes and utensils.
  1. Promotion of Reusable Alternatives: To support this effort, NAJIT will provide a complimentary metal water bottle to all registered attendees. Additionally, tumblers for warm drinks will be available for sale at the conference venue.
  1. Educational Campaign: We will raise awareness about the environmental impact of single-use plastics and the benefits of sustainable practices through signage, emails, and other communication channels.

Why is Sustainability Important to NAJIT?

As an organization, NAJIT recognizes the importance of environmental sustainability. By reducing waste and promoting eco-friendly practices, we can minimize our ecological footprint and contribute to a healthier planet for future generations.

Get Involved!

We invite all conference attendees to join us in embracing the NAJIT Green Initiative. Together, we can make a meaningful difference and create a more sustainable conference experience.

Stay tuned for updates and additional information about the NAJIT Green Initiative on our website and through our communication channels.

Thank you for your support!
