Zurich – Sustanability as a strategy

Zurich is one of the most sustainable convention destinations in the world, ranking third in the Global Destination Sustainability Index (GDS) 2019. Climate-neutral excursion activities, hotels with sustainability certification, short distances, and a highly efficient public transportation network: Zurich provides the perfect framework conditions for holding sustainable events.

 

On the Move in a Climate-Friendly Manner

Zurichs high quality of living is unique. Its first-class mix of mobility options plays a considerable role in this regard. This is firmly anchored in the political strategy of the City of Zurich and encompasses the resource-saving use of energy and the protection of the environment.

Thanks to committed players in the field of mobility, the carbon footprint of group events in Zurich is also reduced.

In Zurich, event managers will find the necessary conditions to design socially, ecologically and economically sustainable Congresses, Meetings and Incentives. For example, 73 percent of all hotel rooms in Zurich are certified for sustainability.

Beside the Umwelt Arena, which is well known as the most sustainable event location in the world, the brand new Convention Center ”The circle”, will open in November and is very much commited to sustainability as well. The brand-new convention center is just a stones throw from the airport terminal buildings and offers event space covering over 3,000 sq.m. A total of 555 guest rooms and suites at the Hyatt Regency Zurich Airport The Circle and Hyatt Place Zurich Airport The Circle accommodate the numerous guests in pleasant surroundings. More information here.

Zürich Tourism has intensively been committed to sustainability since 2010: As Switzerlands first climate-neutral tourism organisation at that time, the destination had around ten years to develop the complex topic of sustainability to make it accessible and understandable to all employees. Step by step a wide variety of measures were implemented. For example the compensation of all unavoidable CO2 emissions or a guideline for sustainable internal events.

The Convention Bureau team is commited to bundle all relevant information related to the topic of sustainability in MICE. To make these information available, a webpage a webpage with tricks and tips for sustainable event planning went live recently.
