Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center is a licensee of the Austrian Ecolabel for Green Meetings & Green Events.
The option of certifying your show as a Green Meeting or Green Event helps us to raise the bar to the next level in terms of economies, ecology and social responsibility. We’re not just here to do our best for customers – we’re also particularly committed to caring for the environment. As a large business hub in Vienna we must also accept responsibility for the future. Let’s take on this responsibility together as we turn your event ‘green’.
A ‘Green’ certificate shows that you’re a pioneer. It has the added benefit of an image boost for your event and your brand in the eyes of participants, customers, sponsors and the local population.
If you are organising a conference, meeting or other event and would like it to be certified according to the Austrian Ecolabel criteria, a number of conditions must be met.
In addition to complying with the mandatory criteria, a minimum number of optional criteria must be satisfied. These optional criteria can be freely chosen, and each one contributes a certain number of points. The requirements of the UZ62 Guideline are considered fulfilled if the mandatory criteria are complied with, and the minimum points required for the type of event in question is reached by complying with optional criteria.
In the following areas, the following obligatory (minimum requirements) must still be satisfied. In order to achieve the total number of points required for certification, and specified additional criteria should also be met.
The stated must-do and should-do criteria have the support of the Consumer Protection Association (VKI) and the Ministry for Life, thus guaranteeing that your event receives official, state inspected certification.
Please remember: an early decision to hold a Green Meeting/Event makes the planning phase significantly easier!
