GreenEvents are events that are planned, organised and implemented according to sustainability criteria. The essential factors here are the use of environmentally friendly products, energy efficiency, waste management, regional added value and social responsibility. These goals are in line with the long-term climate strategy of the South Tyrolean regional government, which has set itself the goal of reducing CO2 emissions per person to less than 4 tonnes within 2020 and to less than 1.5 tonnes per year and person by 2050 at the latest.
The IFSC Climbing World Cup in Brixen also wants to act sustainably and has therefore registered as a “going GreenEvent”. For this, the organisers have to implement criteria from the subject areas of resources, waste, mobility, catering, energy, communication, noise and bonus (alcohol and accessibility).
The trend towards more ecologically compatible events is becoming ever stronger. A sustainable event not only contributes to environmental protection, but also brings a marketing advantage vis-à-vis sponsors, patrons and the public.
The certification and awarding of the “GreenEvent” distinction is carried out by the Office of Waste Management.
The checklist of all the measures implemented by the OC team of the IFSC Climbing World Cup Bressanone can be downloaded here.
We also ask the public for their help in making the event as environmentally friendly as possible. Travelling by bus and train or by bicycle, waste separation and the renunciation of plastic bottles and cans are just some of the measures that will make the event a “green event” in the coming years.
