First non-profit conference & event agency in Germany recognized for sustainability achievements

Green Globe today announces certification of HOST Meeting & Event Services in Frankfurt, Germany. The event agency is the first non-profit conference & event agency in Germany to be awarded Green Globe Certification.

HOST Meeting & Event Services operates under the premise of integrating Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) into its own business operations as well as into the implementation of the events it organizes for its customers. As a non-profit agency, its primary objective is to create jobs for handicapped people.

HOST Meeting & Event Services’ Head of Event Management, Siegmar Ley said: “I am convinced that not only sustainability but Corporate Social Responsibility or CSR is the key to success for all future businesses. Sustainability management is especially important in the event and tourism industries as both greatly affect the environment due to high CO2 emission, creating large amounts of waste and high energy consumption.”

“Sustainability management is important for our organization as well as the events of our customers. As the first non-profit conference & event agency in Germany we strive to organize all our own activities and customer events in line with the three CSR components: economical, ecological and social responsibility,” added Mr. Ley.
