Green Meetings & Green Events

Certification of events

Kleinwalsertal im Nebel

It is possible to certify events like congresses, meetings, company events, seminars or trade fairs with the Österreichische Umweltzeichen – the Eco Symbol of Austria – for ‘Green Meetings and Green Events’. With this certificate event organisers generate positive accents for the environment and  the events’ standing can therefore be improved among participants, sponsors and the population.

The certification process takes into account criteria from the following fields:

  • Regional value creation and social compatibility
  • Environmentally friendly arrival and departure
  • Venues and accommodations with environmental awareness
  • Catering / hospitality with local foods and drinks of high quality or organic quality
  • Environmentally friendly materials procurement
  • Waste prevention, separation and disposal

"ghörig feschta" is a regional programme to support clubs, communities and organisations with the planning and process of sustainable events. The aim is to offer mainly regionally-produced foods and drinks, to use public mobility and to avoid waste through the use of efficient technology and recycling.

"The conditions for an authentic Green Meeting in Vorarlberg are ideal! Many providers live the values of sustainability and regionality, providing a good basis for the certification."
