On the Tuesday before Christmas Salzburg Exhibition and Congress Centre was awarded the ‘Green Meetings and Green Events’ Ecolabel by Austrian Environment Minister Rupprechter.
The Ecolabel was awarded to several enterprises for their exemplary practices in the field of eco-friendliness at the ministry responsible for an Austria worth living in – in Vienna.
“These enterprises all combine ecologically sustainable business activities with commercial success. They stand for environmentally friendly practices, high standards, and commitment to pro-ecological action that far exceeds minimum statutory requirements”, explained Andrä Rupprechter during the award ceremony. Two colleagues responsible for project implementation, Michaela Strasser and Sabine Haberl, received the award on behalf of Salzburg Exhibition and Congress Centre.
“Ever increasing numbers of our trade fair, exhibition, congress and event organisers agree with us that climate protection, regional profit generation and the social responsibility aspects of events are vital to long-term strategic success. As an event organiser with Austrian Ecolabel certification we are able to provide a comprehensive service for environmentally friendly planning and implementation”, said Michaela Strasser.
