Green Meetings eco-label
The Austrian World Summit will be organised according to the standards of the Austrian Green Meetings eco-label
Together with our partner „Klimaneutralitätsbündnis 2025“, the Austrian World Summit will be conducted as a climate neutral event. All energy needed for the conference itself comes from sustainable sources. We also rely on energy efficient and climate friendly technology, transportation and mobility. Emissions that are unavoidably produced by travels are being compensated through the support of a climate initiative in Ethiopia. In cooperation with the Caritas Vorarlberg foreign aid and the University of Applied Life Sciences, 5.000 households in 8 communities over an area of 400 km² will be supported. The package for one household compromises two efficient ovens, vegetable seeds, including a training for vegetable cultivation, tree seedlings including reforestation projects, one solar-powered light source as well as the drinking water treatment WADI, which is sun-powered.

Conservation of resources & Regionality
For all materials in use as well as for the catering conservation of resources, the protection of the environment and sustainability are top priorities. Food originates from regional and organic production and fair trade respectively. Also give-aways fulfil the sustainability standards. In order to avoid waste, drinks and meals will be served solely in and on reusable dishes. Leftovers can be taken home in the “Tafelbox”. For each box 20 cent go to the Austrian Tafeln, a charity organization, which serves impoverished people with saved food.
It is especially important to us that participants can travel to and from the venue in an environmentally friendly manner. The venue, Hofburg, is located centrally and can be conveniently reached by public transport (for more on transportation, also see above). There is sufficient space to park bicycles around the venue. Furthermore, there is also a city-bike station as well as e-charging stations (for example, in the garage on Robert-Stolzplatz).
