Vienna Convention Bureau recertified as official license holder for green meetings

Environmental conservation and sustainability are growing in importance in the conferences and meetings industry. Organizers of congresses and trade fairs are increasingly focusing on climate protection, local value creation and social responsibility – and therefore on green meetings and events.

Since 2012, Austria's ecolabel has been approved for use as a designation for Green Meetings and Green Events. It acts as an identifier for events organized according to specific sustainability criteria. As an official licensee for the Austrian Ecolabel for Green Meetings and Green Events, the Vienna Convention Bureau provides support to organizers when they are planning and coordinating such events, and is authorized to grant certification.

All mandatory criteria and a certain number of optional criteria need to be met, in defined categories, in order for an organizer to receive certification for an event. For this purpose, every organizer needs an official license holder for green meeting certification. The person or organization that is granted official certification is responsible for satisfying the criteria and demonstrating that they have been met.

As a license holder, Vienna Convention Bureau is happy to support you. If you have any questions about green meetings and certification, please contact Elisabeth Millington () or Christina Strohschneider ().

An overview of all license holders in Vienna can be found on the Austrian Ecolabel website.
