Probably the world’s most sustainable meeting place

A sustainable meeting place in the heart of Scandinavia

You can rely on us to offer top class experiences where we take responsibility for the environmental and social footprints generated. We believe that a good venue should not only be ready for the future – it should lead us there. For us, this means making active choices about all aspects of our operations, from cleaning and transportation to food and drink. Needless to say, sustainability is integrated into our offering, and we offer rational and secure solutions based on our extensive experience. That’s how we make a real difference.

When you hold your event with us, you can rest assured that the venue meets strict international sustainability standards. We use the same certification that was used at the Olympic Games in London in 2012, ISO 20121. This standard was specially designed for sustainable events. Gothia Towers is the largest hotel in Europe so far to be certified according to BREEAM, one of the world’s most widely used environmental certification systems. All this is aimed at offering attractive and unique experiences.

Did you know?
We have 100,000 bees on our roofs which provide the honey we serve at breakfast, all electricity used at the venue comes from wind power, and 94 percent of our waste is recycled.

Gothenburg is the world’s most sustainable city

Gothenburg has topped the ICCA Global Destination Sustainable Index for three consecutive years as the world’s most sustainable meeting destination. 50 cities and destinations are assessed in the ranking based on around 30 criteria such as recycling, waste management, environmental certification of hotels and restaurants, greenhouse emissions, bike-share systems, accessibility, traffic conditions and sustainability strategies in the public and private sectors.

Do you want to make your meeting even more sustainable? When you hold your event in Gothenburg, you can have it environmentally certified. Read more about this process: Svensk Miljöbas.
