Salzburg Congress

"Green Meetings & Green Events"
in Salzburg Congress "Green Location"

The award of the Austrian Environmental Seal of Approval to Salzburg Congress in April 2011 means event organisers now benefit from our facilities to accommodate ‘Green Meetings’. This certification provided by the "The Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management" enables us to award your events an environmental seal. The seal was developed by the Austria Convention Bureau in cooperation with the "The Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management". The comprehensive list of guidelines involved is unique in Europe and endows official approval for the ecologically aware organisation of meetings.

Procedures for organisers
On signing the contract for the event organisers are able to choose whether to stage the event subject to the principles of ecological sustainability. The ‘Green Meeting / Green Event’ concept is an extra plus point as you engage in the process of advertising your event to participants, speakers and associates.

Certified by Salzburg Congress
The goal Salzburg Congress has set itself is to be capable of staging events in the city of Salzburg according to strict ecological principles in order to spare natural resources and optimise both energy efficiency and regional commercial benefits. This is a strategy of the utmost importance in a city like Salzburg, whose beauty has earned it the status of a UNESCO world cultural heritage site. We gladly accept this responsibility together with our suppliers and service partners, clients and our highly motivated team, and every day we do our very best to implement the concept of ‘Green Meetings & Green Events’ – in word and deed!
