Green meetings are defined as "meetings that integrate environmentally friendly concepts across all planning stages to minimise damage to the environment". Germany has made sustainability and environmental awareness its trademark.
Nearly 40% of German event venues have already implemented a sustainability management system and numerous providers hold certificates from organisations such as Green Globe, EMAS or ISO. (GCB)

Discover the most sustainable city district:
HafenCity was developed to be a particularly sustainable project. This is primarily reflected in the construction and design of the various buildings and spaces. Take a walk through HafenCity and discover the various buildings that are particularly energy-efficient. These buildings provide their own power using renewable energy sources and show us how sustainable urban structures can be. Starting with the most famous building in the city – the Elbphilharmonie, you can admire the Unilever HQ with its unique facade. Find out what the oldest building in HafenCity is and learn useful facts about sustainability in the Osaka9 Pavilion or in the exhibition located in the Greenpeace headquarters. Admire the Spiegel publishing house, which received the gold HafenCity environmental label, and then relax in the green heart of HafenCity – the Lohsepark.
