Sustainable. Ambitious. Professional.
Our Green Meeting concept makes an important contribution to ecological action
across all (planning) phases of an event. Hereby our sustainability concept is based on a permanent optimisation and improvement in all areas, select partnerships with certified partners and resource-saving action.
Green Meeting at Steigenberger
Those who would like to make a contribution to sustainable development with their conference, can do this with the award-winning concept Green Meeting by Steigenberger without much effort. All European Steigenberger Hotels and Resorts now offer Green Meeting. With this concept we not only ensure ecological protection of resources behind the scenes, but want to make sustainability become alive for you.
Green Meeting at IntercityHotel
The Green Meeting concept of IntercityHotel is the logical progression of a long-term commitment to protect the environment. It gives us the opportunity to completely offset the CO2 climate impact of the meetings we host and to reduce our carbon footprint. We want to make sustainability become alive for you.
Energy efficiency and renewable energies
For a serious energy management, it is important to increase energy efficiency while reducing energy consumption. We reach this goal through:
- state-of-the-art building control systems
- automated energy monitoring systems
- LED bulbs and motion detectors
Attention is paid to sustainability when purchasing our energy mix. We do this by:
- using electricity from 100% renewable energy sources
- buying electricity from certified energy sources
- continuously improving our energy-related services according to ISO 50001
Conservation of resources and environmental protection
For the preservation of natural spaces and in the interest of cross-generational fairness, it is essential that we protect our natural resources. Our Green Meetings concept makes an important contribution to eco-friendly action across all (planning) stages of an event. We do this for example by:
- using flipchart pencils made of recycled materials
- using flipchart papers and blocks made of FSC® paper
- Processing of solvent-free printing inks according to ISO 12647
- reducing emissions, waste and wastewater
Regional and seasonal
A balanced and healthy diet is important to us. Our Green Meeting concept therefore stands for high quality and authentic food as well as short transport routes. We implement this by:
- preferably serving regional and seasonal foods
- preferably buying Fairtrade products
- using specially prepared drinking water from specially designed reusable glass bottles
Climate protection and environmental awareness
We guarantee our guests a climate neutral event. The CO2 compensation of a conference can be officially confirmed by a certificate, upon request. Our supportive partners are:
- atmoafair - in cooperation with our partner CO2 emissions are offset by UN-certified social climate protection projects
- Deutsche Bahn with a CO2 neutral arrival and departure by using the event ticket
