Uppsala Convention Bureau

Ecological & social sustainability

Uppsala is a great starting point if you want to arrange more sustainable meetings and events. It is easy to get here using public transport; short distances within the city centre make it easy to get around on foot or by bike, and the majority of meeting locations and hotels are environmentally certified.

Uppsala is a great place for sustainable meetings and events, a result of long-term and focused sustainability work by the city and those within the local meeting and events industry. Here at Uppsala Convention Bureau, we want to encourage, support and provide you with tips on how to best plan and hold sustainable meetings and events.

There is a preconception that sustainability is expensive, but it doesn’t have to be so. A well thought-out sustainability policy for a meeting can in fact cut costs, not create them – and contribute to ecological and social sustainability. No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.
