Did you know, that every participant of a congress causes 3,5 kg residual waste and 5,5 kg paper waste? Together with the Umweltzeichen (Austrian Environmental Seal of Approval), the ACB wants to fight against those unnecessary mountains of trash. Since the Ferry Porsche Congress Center Zell am See got awarded with the Austrian Umweltzeichen in September 2013, we fight against the unnecessary mountains of trash as well. The Umweltzeichen for “Green Meetings” and “Green Events” honors organizers who try to reduce those amounts of waste. These organizers are supported by Umweltzeichen-certified catering companies, hotels, suppliers or eco label - print shops.
Now, you have the chance to conduct a “Green Meeting” or a “Green Event” in our house. The certification of the Austrian Ministry of Life gives us the right to certificate your event with the austrian eco-label.
Here are some of the criteria:
- Mobility and CO2 compensation
- Catering & gastronomy
- Communication & social aspects
The Ferry Porsche Congress Center has its own in-house agent for all issues concerning ‘Green Meetings’ & ‘Green Events’. Barbara Vorreiter is your point of contact for advice and support for all questions you may have.
The goal the Ferry Porsche Congress Center Zell am See has set itself is to be capable of staging events in the city of Zell am See according to strict ecological principles in order to spare natural resources and optimize both energy efficiency and regional commercial benefits.
In regards to ecology, we as a congress centre want to concentrate on sustainability and protection of the environment: We only use 100% recycled paper and take care of avoidance of waste as well as waste separation before, during and after the event.
Our exclusive catering-partner – Chef Partie Birngruber Gastronomie – is organic-certified and a partner of Bio Austria since July 2010. He offers only traditional groceries, especially regional, seasonal and ecological products which come from organic-agriculture.
Furthermore almost all of our partner hotels can be reached by foot, the other ones can be reached by public transport easily. To drive short-distance-ways with the private car is not necessary.
In collaboration with our suppliers, partners for performance, customers and our dedicated team we take over responsibility for our environment. Together with them we try to implement the concept of a green event.
