The "Guideline for the Sustainable Organisation of Events" issued by the German Environment Agency provides recommendations on how events can be organised in an environmentally friendly, socially compatible and economic manner. The recommendations given in the Guideline range from connections to the local public transport system via the selection of sustainably produced products up to the environmental management of hotels and conference centres.
Even social matters such as physical accessibility for disabled persons are taken into account besides environmental aspects.
The guideline is part of the National Program on Sustainability (Maßnahmenprogramm Nachhaltigkeit
der Bundesregierung) issued by the federal government.
