“Green event management” – we help you plan your event

Today, many companies and decision makers like working with event partners who can help them to make their events more environmentally friendly and ecological; because sustainability management can also apply to the world of events and congresses. We would like to help you achieve this.

Our guiding principles is “100% sustainable – we’re on our way”. For years, we have been committed to making our venue and our services more environmentally compatible and therefore future-proof – something which is an added challenge for a listed building. We tackle this challenge with both large and small projects in the areas of resource management, energy efficiency, waste reduction, innovative technology and a heightened awareness of everything we do.  We are naturally more than willing to share this know-how.

Working together in a sustainable way
As event manager, you are able to take advantage of the many sustainability measures, whether they are big or small, visible or “behind the scenes”, that give your events added value. They play their part in our joint endeavour to make events more environmentally friendly.

Our “Sustainability Status Report” provides a transparent overview of the range of these measures. It contains information on on-going goals to implement sustainability in ecological, economic and social ways and documents both completed measures and those that are still in progress.

We use district heating generated in our municipal waste incineration plant. With our annual consumption of 1,109,015.9 kWh, we were able to save 195.2 tonnes of CO2 in 2022 compared to a gas-heated building. By purchasing green electricity, we even saved around 398.8 tonnes of CO2 with an annual consumption of 607,077 kWh in 2022.

You can start making conferences or meetings more sustainable from the very beginning through practical steps such as paper-free invitations and travel by train:

  • Wuppertal is centrally located in the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region
  • The main railway station is served by the high-speed (ICE) trains and is two minutes away
  • Take advantage of our attractively priced “DB Event Ticket” (CO2 free) in cooperation with Deutsche Bahn (Germany Railways)
  • 8 hotels are within walking distance of the Historische Stadthalle
  • Barrier-free access allows for the participation of all visitors

“Green Meetings“ are made up of a large number of these sorts of elements. We would be delighted to advise you on all the available options.


We have committed ourselves to “rightandfair”. Since 2013, the Historische Stadthalle has adhered to the “Sustainability Code of the German-speaking Events Sector”, a voluntary commitment to corporate responsibility for sustainability when organising and running events.


We are ÖKOPROFIT®-certified: The Historische Stadthalle successfully used the 12th ÖKOPROFIT® workshop in 2022/23 and recognised environmentally relevant savings potential as part of the project. Everyone benefits from the implementation of the measures developed.
