Düsseldorf Convention joins Climate Pact

December 8th, 2023

Düsseldorf Convention, as a unit of Düsseldorf Marketing GmbH, has joined the Düsseldorf Climate Pact, thereby sending a significant signal for sustainable events in the state capital. As the official convention bureau of the city, it has a major influence on how conferences, congresses, and events are implemented in Düsseldorf. By participating in the Climate Pact, the bureau commits to paying even more attention to sustainability in event planning in the future.

Environmentally Friendly Events in Düsseldorf

The convention bureau's membership is a crucial step towards more environmentally friendly events in Düsseldorf. According to a study by the German Environment Agency, the event industry causes over 600,000 tons of CO2 emissions annually. Conscious planning can significantly reduce emissions and waste at events.

The Düsseldorf Convention Bureau aims to support organizers, for example, by:

  • Selecting venues with good public transportation connections
  • Recommending regional, seasonal food
  • Providing information on environmentally friendly mobility
  • Connecting with service providers for sustainable event technology
  • Networking for Green Events

As part of the Climate Pact, the bureau can leverage the network and resources of over 300 partner companies. Solutions for climate-friendly events are developed collaboratively. Event planners thus benefit from the knowledge exchange within the Climate Pact.

Sustainability is No Longer Optional

Furthermore, participation in the Climate Pact is a crucial signal to event organizers. Sustainability is increasingly becoming an expectation of conference participants and event attendees. According to a study by Meet Green, 73% of respondents attach great importance to environmentally conscious events. Through collaboration with the Climate Pact Bureau, events in Düsseldorf can distinguish themselves in the future by their special commitment to sustainability.

The inclusion of the Düsseldorf Convention Bureau in the Climate Pact is a significant step toward more climate-friendly events in the state capital. By participating in the network, there are numerous opportunities to make events more sustainable. Now, it is essential to seize these opportunities and further develop Düsseldorf as a destination for green conferences and congresses.
