Germany: Green Meetings Awards and Certificates in the Stuttgart Region

The Filderhalle Congress and Conference Centre was recently awarded the Green Globe certificate for the fourth time. The Stadthalle Reutlingen, which opened last year, also holds this certification. As a modern business hotel with direct access to Stuttgart Airport and to the Messe Stuttgart trade fair centre / ICS International Congress Center Stuttgart, the Mövenpick Hotel Stuttgart Airport & Messe has also earned its certificate.

The airport operator Flughafen Stuttgart GmbH was awarded EMAS certification last year and also received the 2013 Green Controlling Award for its "Fairport Controlling" initiative in the management of its operational sustainability performance. The commitment of these providers to the protection of the environment exemplifies the degree of importance placed on sustainable meetings by the Stuttgart Region as a conference and congress destination. It also underlines the extent of the conviction and success which the scheme is achieving here.

The Stuttgart Convention Bureau bundles the region's green meeting offers and has various supplementary services in its portfolio for all-round sustainable solutions. These include free public transport tickets, DB (German Rail) Event Tickets for climate-neutral travel to the congress destination at a concessionary price as well as a new specialised data bank which enables event organisers to find the wide range of congress venues as well as hotels in the Stuttgart Region that are strongly involved in promoting sustainability, hold certification or have implemented sustainability strategies.
