Did you know that on average, 204 kg of carbon dioxide emissions, 5.5 kg of waste paper, 3.5 kg of non-recyclable waste are generated and 151 litres of water are used per conference delegate, per day?

We take sustainability very seriously – and we want to help you keep the environmental impact of your event as low as possible. 

How you can make a valuable contribution!

  1. Use public transport wherever possible. The Austria Center Vienna is located right next to the Kaisermühlen/VIC U1 underground station, making it easy to reach by public transport.
  2. In today’s world of smartphones and tablets you should always look for electronic meeting documentation and try to avoid picking up unnecessary advertising materials and brochures.
  3. By choosing regional and organic products you not only do your body the power of good – you are also supporting the local economy.
  4. Savour the flavour of Austrian spring water – served in a glass.
  5. Choose reusable crockery and dispense with the need for disposal packaging.
  6. Keep your eyes peeled when it comes to separating rubbish – we supply different bins to make recycling even easier.
  7. Treat yourself to a short walk and some fresh air during break times. The Donaupark is just a stone’s throw away.
  8. Select a hotel within walking distance – it will save you time.
  9. Hand back your name badge sleeve when you leave – we can reuse it several times.
  10. And one final point: make sure that you tell other people just how easy it is to incorporate the green meetings approach into their every day lives.
