Energy efficiency: In order to use energy more efficiently, we have been sourcing our energy from a combined heat and power (CHP) plant since 2014. Here we benefit from the way CHP works. It lets us use not only electricity but also heat for heating without having to resort to different providers.
Sustainable mobility: The majority of emissions related to an event are caused by mobility. We therefore encourage participants to travel by public transport.
Sustainable catering: Catering can also be a burden on the environment. Some 15–20 % of an event’s emissions are related to feeding the participants. Our catering company fairgourmet, for example, specialises in regional, in-season produce and certified organic and fair-trade products. In the event that disposable tableware is unavoidable, it is made of biodegradable or renewable raw materials, e.g. salad bowls made of the bioplastic polylactic acid.
Leipzig Tourismus und Marketing GmbH is at your disposal and will be happy to advise you on event planning.
