A continuation of the initial version launched in May 2021, the updated version is developed as a digital pre-planning tool. It highlights ambitions and how these can reduce CO2 emissions and create social and lasting impact while contributing to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
The guide is now interactive and adapts to the user’s level of ambition. With explicit insights into C02 emissions, the guide provides inspiration for sustainable choices, and actions, and helps assess the effects hereof. It is then up to the planner to execute these sustainable actions.
Along with potentially creating positive impacts in local communities, events also leave adverse effects like carbon emission footprints and excessive consumption. By launching the pre-planning guide, Copenhagen Convention Bureau hopes to help mitigate the negative impact of events.
Copenhagen is a frontrunner when it comes to sustainable development and solutions. The local meetings industry is no exception with the destination currently ranked 2nd on the GDS Index. The ambition for 2030 is to ensure that tourism in Greater Copenhagen positively impacts local and global sustainable development. The Copenhagen Sustainability guide is part of this ambition by helping minimise CO2 and at the same time drive sustainable transformation processes through engagement programmes facilitated by Copenhagen Legacy Lab.
