All our own Green Capital events were organised as environmental-friendly as possible with the manual „Events: The Same in Green“.
For example, at the Introduction event, the Kick-off event for citizens and the “ZEIT KONFERENZ der Umwelthauptstadt” (ZEIT CONFERENCE of the European Green Capital) we have have tried to avoid waste and to use organic, regional and saisonal products. All our events have been carried out CO2-neutral.
The Altonale and the STAMP Festival have even developed an own concept „Altonale goes green“ on the basis of our manual and have already implemented measures. These included for example an Eco Lane, environmental consultation to booth operators and also the CO2 compensation linked to the travelling of international artists.
Tor create an additional incentive, in the Green Capital year we have made environmental-friendliness of an event a criterion for the award of our logo „an action within the framework of the European Green Capital 2011“. In total, 70 operators were awared with the logo.
