From beehives & beer to football & fruit – Hamburg Convention Bureau shares city’s planet-friendly practices
Earth Day brings with it a very welcome focus on sustainability, one that’s all the more timely and relevant given the current crisis we’re experiencing. The team at Hamburg Convention Bureau is celebrating Earth Day by sharing some of the positive planet-friendly practices put in place by the certified Fair Trade city, and former European Green Capital (2011).
In these unprecedented times of crisis and chaos it’s important to share and draw strength from positive stories on how the industry has responded. Hamburg Convention Bureau has gathered together some of the best business-support initiatives launched in the city in response to the coronavirus crisis.
Sustainability continues to be a firm focus for many event planners. Providing delegates with planet-friendly methods of travelling is one of the many ways to deliver this. Test tracks for autonomous driving and hydrogen fuelled options in the new area of the city – the HafenCity – , the electric ride pooling service MOIA, dedicated travel cards for delegates and free travel on bikes, scooters – and even skateboards – thanks to some of the city’s hotels. Switching to climate-friendly mobility: In Hamburg there are numerous possibilities for this on the rails, on the road on four wheels or on two wheels.
