Berlin´s future is green: Sustainable Meetings Berlin

Berlins creative path to a sustainable congress destination.

Berlin is the city of green trends, and Sustainable Meetings will make the city even greener. In cooperation with hotels, locations, agencies, caterers and service providers, the visitBerlin Berlin Convention Office has launched the first initiative for sustainable event planning in Berlin. The aim of Sustainable Meetings Berlin is to develop the German capital into one of the most innovative and sustainable metropolises for conferences and congresses. Sustainable event planning is no longer a niche product, but a prerequisite for more and more organisers when choosing a congress venue.

 

Sustainable Meetings Berlins offers these three components:

  • an online information tool for sustainability in the MICE sector
  • an online platform listing approved sustainable venues and service providers for events for national and international event planners
  • a strong partner network.

Developed with the sector for the sector
Sustainable Meetings Berlin has a range of advantages for users and participants. It gives event organisers a practical instrument for greater sustainability. With their participation in the Sustainable Meetings Berlin initiative, the Sustainable Partners have the chance to drive forward sustainability in their own company and gain expertise in this area. A set of special criteria based on internationally recognized guidelines were developed to evaluate sustainability in partner businesses and services. In addition to the choice of a sustainable energy source, this also includes social criteria such as personnel management.
