Green Meeting Destination

Regenerative Meeting Destination Tirol

Conferencing, as a sustainable experience with a small ecological footprint, but great social impact? Is that even possible? We are convinced: Yes, it’s possible! And not only that, it’s even quite easy! We can show that it is not hard to make improvements on how we do many things and that encounters with a good conscience are even more sustainable and memorable.
We are therefore going the extra mile in our trailblazing role and making sustainability in the Tirolean convention industry measurable in a benchmarking process, accompanied by the internationally recognised team of experts surrounding the GDS (Global Destination Sustainability) movement.

In Tirol there are already many wonderful examples of how “sustainable meetings in Tirol” are possible. Allow us to inspire you with the many green practice examples of our lateral thinkers, tenacious Tiroleans and modern role models.

Together with our Tyrolean MICE experts, we encourage an authentic, future-oriented way of thinking, built on the tried and tested, so that our grandchildren can still meet safely and with peace of mind in Tirol.

We can advise every event planner on how to easily conserve resources, save energy, assume social responsibility and demonstrably contribute to global sustainable development with congresses, conferences, seminars, team building, sporting events and galas. This naturally creates a positive image among locals, participants, service providers and sponsors alike, encouraging others to lead by example.

For us, acting responsibly is defined by using regional, fresh organic cuisine and catering with waste prevention and meaningful recycling, CO2-friendly travel and sustainable experiences in nature, combined with relaxed overnight stays in energy-efficient, eco-certified conference hotels. Did you know, for example, that the electricity supply of all households in Tirol is covered 100% by hydropower (= green-electricity), produced locally by the province’s largest energy supplier, TIWAG?*

Or that 31.1 kilograms of CO2 emissions and 60 minutes of time can be saved if you travel from Berlin to Innsbruck by train instead of by car?**

Once you have arrived in Tirol, there is hardly any need to use transport facilities to attend an event. With its short commuting distances, almost everything in Tirol is accessible on foot. Something that benefits not only the environment, but our health too.

To live in Tirol, nestled in the midst of nature, is a privilege that I very much appreciate and enjoy in my private life. I would also like to give our clients the luxury of indulging in the essential pleasures of rest and relaxation in nature before, during and after work.
