Green MeetingEsri European User Conference Is Targeting Certification According to Austrian Eco Label "Green Meeting"
Any conference involves a lot of logistics, travel, materials that are not eco-friendly, basically. But it can still offer the chance to minimize the carbon footprint and be aware. We will try our best to do that and invite you as participants to join in! Please see what we will do and how you can get active!
Salzburg Congress is a registered "green location" as to energy consumption and environmentally friendly materials and procedures and it’s very well connected to the public transportation network so it’s easily reachable from your hotel.
Travel to Salzburg is eco-friendly by train (the “Deutsche Bahn” and the “ÖBB”) . The local public transportation system offers a continuous and direct connection with emission-free city buses from the city center, the train station and the airport to the conference venue.
