Copenhagen CVB launches new sustainability guide for event planners

Wonderful Copenhagen, the convention bureau of the Danish capital, has launched a new Copenhagen Sustainability Guide.

The guide offers a “holistic and hands-on” guide to staging green events in the city. It is an extension of the bureau’s ‘Tourism for good’ strategy.

It is based on interviews with organisers about their work and needs. It provides case studies and ideas for how events can set ambitious sustainable solutions on a local and global level.

The guide can be viewed here.

Kit Lykketoft, director of the Copenhagen CVB, said: “New generations of events and congresses need a much more holistic approach to sustainable solutions. One that engages and inspires participants, exhibitors, and suppliers alike and drives lasting sustainable impact in communities – before, during and after an event.”

“In Copenhagen, we work with sustainable solutions and legacy work on many levels. Throughout the years, we have gained huge expertise within this field, and new ideas and perspectives on next-gen sustainable events are therefore always high on our agenda.

“Our Copenhagen Legacy Lab, launched in 2019, and this hands-on sustainability guide are only two examples out of many on how we continue to build and share thoughts and tips on future regenerative, resilient, and responsible event planning with the outside world, to create a lasting positive impact,” Kit Lykketoft continues.
