-Green meetings at the Austria Center Vienna

From large-scale conferences with 22,800 participants to gala events – certification is a clear statement of commitment to organising an event in a financially, environmentally and socially responsible way. We are here to advise and support you while you plan your event, and even provide free green meeting or green event certification in compliance with the Austrian Ecolabel.

-Make sure your events have that feelgood factor

There are mandatory criteria to be met in 9 different areas, as well as numerous optional points to help you achieve certification. Depending on the event, you need to accumulate between 32 and 55 points to achieve certification. You will automatically be awarded 27 points in the ‘venue’ category simply by hosting your event at the Austria Center Vienna.
