First Green Conference Center

Austria Center Vienna was awarded first Austrian Eco-label for conference and meeting venues. Venues certified in accordance with that UZ 203 must show that they comply with a raft of economic, environmental, social, cultural, quality and health and safety requirements, and that they have adopted various related measures.

130 Green Meetings during the EU Presidency

A major part of the conferences of the Austrian EU Presidency took place in the Austria Center Vienna and all 130 events were certified as Green Meetings. So, conferences with 36.000 delegates were conducted especially resource-saving, energy-efficient and waste-avoidant.

A certified venue

Austria Center Vienna: the nation’s first green conference centre
In April 2014 the Austria Center Vienna became the first conference centre in the country to acquire the Umweltzeichen eco-label for conference and meeting venues. Protecting the environment and adopting a sustainable and ecologically sound approach to doing business is at the heart of Austria Center Vienna’s operations. The award also took into account the facility’s commitment to society and its treatment of employees. As an official Green Meeting and Green Events certification partner, the Austria Center Vienna encourages its customers to have their events certified and supports them throughout the process. Organisers also benefit from the additional points allocated to their events thanks to the Austria Center Vienna’s status as a certified green venue.
