The tool not only gathers sustainable offers from Berlin’s hotels, venues and service providers, but also offers tips for organisers who want to make their events more climate-neutral and environmentally friendly.

“With Sustainable Meetings Berlin we want to further strengthen the topic of sustainability in the MICE sector,” says Iris Lanz, Director Conventions at the visitBerlin Berlin Convention Office. “The platform focuses on the wide range of offerings in the German capital. This gives planners a valuable tool to help them creating a sustainable event. A dedicated network of partners stands behind the initiative. The content was developed with the MICE industry for the MICE industry.”
 
The partners’ sustainable offers are evaluated according to special criteria based on internationally recognised frameworks, and clearly presented in the Meeting Guide Berlin. In addition to the choice of sustainable energy sources, this also includes social criteria such as human resource management. The website is also an information tool and offers tips on how to save CO2 by choosing the right catering.
 
At the Sustainable Meetings Berlin counter (Stand F100/30), the team provides information about the new initiative. Visitors to IMEX can mix their own smoothies and pick herbs from the vertical garden to add to them. The electricity for the mixer is generated with own muscle power on a bicycle.
