Staging environmentally conscious events
Since it opened in 2006 the congress centre in Saalfelden has dedicated itself to guaranteeing environmentally and socially sustainable practices. During the rebuilding phase great emphasis was placed on ecologically sound building materials and methods; and on ensuring the modern congress centre blended perfectly with the centre of the town. The certification was awarded by the Austrian ‘Lebensministerium’, responsible for environmental issues, and it entitles Congress Saalfelden to award your event the Austrian Eco-Label.
What is different about a Green Meeting?
Instead of generating mountains of waste and traffic gridlocks, Green Meetings and Green Events are about increased energy efficiency, avoiding the creation of waste, and about bringing guests to and from the event with the least possible damage to the environment. Key aspects of this approach are an insistence upon regional sourcing, local profit generation and social responsibility. In turn, your event is given a positive image among the general public, guests and sponsors.
Successful Green Meeting certification is dependent upon a number of criteria, such as the possibility of travelling without coming by car, plans for the avoidance of waste, and the use of regional and seasonal produce. There is more information on the criteria for Green Meetings on the website of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management (BMLFUW).
