Esri European User Conference is targeting certification as "Green Meeting"

Any conference is a lot of logistics, travel, materials ... not eco-friendly, basically. But any conference also offers chances to minimize the footprint and be aware! Please see what we will do and where you can get active:

Green Location: Salzburg Congress is a registered "green location" as to energy consumption, environmental friendly materials and procedures ... and very well connected to the public transportation network - so easily reachable from your hotel.

Travel Green: Travel to Salzburg eco-friendly by using the train (the “Deutsche Bahn” and the “ÖBB”) . The local public transportation system offers our participants a continuous and direct connection with emission-free city buses from the city centre, the train station and the airport to the conference venue [more travel details]. 

Stay Green: Many hotels and guest houses are located nearby our venue. Check out our special hotel offers as well as the indicated distances to the Congress. Most Hotels we have in the shortlist are in walking distance!

Act Green: We will print on certified paper, reduce whatever materials you get, built an eco-friendly exhibition, recycle, use (wherever possible) regional food and beverages and compensate for our staff.

What you can do:

  • Use the public transport of Salzburg
  • Ever been on a congress using a bike or using an e-car 
  • Compare your CO2-footprint for different modes of travel ... plane, car, train with Eco Passenger
  • Compensate YOUR "travel footprint" to Salzburg individually. It doesnt cost a fortune - and will help. We recommend to look at Atmosfair to do so!  
  • Use digital information where possible (Online app, don’t print flyers/folders if not necessary)
  • Help us avoid waste and return whatever you do not need to us for proper recycling – like your badge at the end of the congress!
