Wonderful Copenhagen | Convention Bureau | Sustainable Meetings

Capital of Sustainable Meetings

Copenhagen holds the world record for consumption of organic food; 52% of all Copenhageners commute by bicycle every day; and almost 70% of the city’s hotel rooms are eco-certified. What's more, the city's meetings product is so green that the chances are your meeting will be sustainable, whether that was your aim or not!

Copenhagen is known as one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the world and was the official European Green Capital in 2014, so organising a sustainable event here is no great challenge. We have certified experience in hosting state-of-the-art events with a sustainable profile.

Copenhagen's sustainable portfolio is so comprehensive that it is easier to hold a sustainable event than a non-sustainable one. In fact, close to 70 % of all Copenhagen hotel rooms hold an official eco-certification. Many of the city’s convention venues are Green Key certified, including the two largest venues Bella Center and Tivoli Congress Center.

Capital C Carbon neutral, Cycling and Cuisine with a Conscience

The Copenhagen City Council is working targeted to become the world’s first CO2-neutral capital by 2025 and in 2015, Denmark ranked number one on the Climate Change Performance Index, a success based on positive development in recent emissions and good policy execution.

Copenhagen is home to the world’s busiest bicycle lane, used by 36,000 cyclists per day and the city’s rush hour differs from most others. Here it is not the roads but the bicycle lanes which are crowded, mainly because 56% of all Copenhageners commute by bike. In 2016, bicycles even outnumbered cars in Copenhagen. In 2011, the International Cycling Union assigned Copenhagen the first official ‘Bike City’.

A great selection of the city’s restaurant, cafés and hotels are riding the “green-wave”, taking the city to a completely new level of eco-friendliness ensuring that you can eat environmentally friendly food at all price levels.

Restaurant Geranium holds three Michelin-stars and only serves organic food and beverages and, in general, you will encounter an increasing desire for largely Nordic produce and food made in harmony with nature.
