Portugal: Estoril Congress Center Launches Campaign to Reduce Carbon Footprint
Estoril Congress Center (ECC) is launching a new institutional campaign targeting customers and other stakeholders with the claim "Reduce, Reuse & Recycle". Stickers were posted at strategic points in the building, presenting the results of the effective reduction of this venue's carbon footprint in the past three years.
ECC was able to reduce CO2 emissions by 62 tons over the past three years, water consumption by 20% and electricity by 11 percent. These results follow an investment in energy saving measures in the building and the Sustainability Policy in effect.
Currently, ECC is the only green venue in Portugal and Spain (according to the EarthCheck Silver Certification) and has become a successful case study in the area of sustainability in the meetings industry sector. The venue's sustainability policy dates from 2008.
