The Austrian ecolabel for “Green Meetings & Green Events” was created as a quality label that demonstrates social action and environmental management of a meeting / event organizer outwards.
To officially certify a meeting / event with the Austrian eco-label, you need a licensed company that takes over the organization.
The license agreement is awarded for a period of four years. After this period, an overall assessment according to the most recent version of the ecolabel guideline is required in order to being allowed to continue using the eco-label.
Since we are a licensee starting from 2011, as the first PCO in Austria, this year we have our recertification. In this regard, we need to demonstrate again on the basis of a pilot event that the meeting meets all the mandatory criteria and achieves a certain number of points from the optional criteria. Furthermore, a staff training on “Green Meetings & Green Office” is carried out by an external consultant in our office.
