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.
A recent milestone is the switch to energy from renewable resources, which allows the Historische Stadthalle to reduce CO2 emissions by 301,284 kg per year. We are able to cover our entire annual electricity consumption of 740,256 kWh this way.
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 took full advantage of the 10th Ökoprofit® workshop 2015/16 and, as part of the project, identified potential environmentally relevant savings. The implementation of the resulting measures has ended up benefiting everybody.
