Uppsala Convention Bureau

Ecological & social sustainability

Uppsala has a good starting point for those who want to arrange sustainable meetings and events. Getting here with public transportation is quick and easy, the short distances within the city centre make it easy to get around by foot or by bike, and almost all our meeting venues and hotels are environmentally certified.

Thanks to the long-term and focused sustainability work of the city and the actors within the local meeting and event industry, Uppsala is a given choice for sustainable events.

There is a preconceived notion that sustainability is expensive, but that does not have to be the case. At Uppsala Convention Bureau, we want to encourage, support and give you tips on how best to plan and carry out this type of event. A well thought-out sustainability policy can actually reduce costs while contributing to increased ecological and social sustainability.

No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.
