Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
We care about our planet and the social environment.
Are you planning a conference and want it to be as sustainable as possible?
Looking back over the past 20 years and evaluating what has happened, we realise that the world has changed beyond recognition. Technology has paved the way for people to connect in ways we never thought possible and has changed politics, world affairs, sciences and modern culture.
All these changes have also impacted the communities and resources we use as a company. Recognising that resources are not limitless, we firmly believe in our responsibility to operate sustainably, upholding high ethical standards and fostering a culture that values reliability, efficiency, professionalism, honesty, integrity, and creativity in all our endeavours.
We support our clients by providing leadership and role modelling in making healthier choices at their events. As a team, we decided to support Healthy Venues. The Healthy Venues family provides us with the tools enabling us to make the best and healthiest venue selection and hence an overall better event experience for all.
Small things can help the environment, and we proudly offer extensive consultancy on this vital topic. We can help our clients to integrate a Corporate Social Responsibility policy into their supplier chains and to reduce and compensate for the environmental impacts caused by their congresses. Depending on the unique social and ecological challenges each congress faces, we guide the holistic planning process.
To provide the best consultancy to our clients, we will remain committed to expanding our understanding of social and environmental issues affecting our businesses and communities.
At Congrex Switzerland, we are passionate about creating a future where sustainability is seamlessly integrated into every aspect of our operations and events. Our ongoing dedication to sustainability has been recognised with the prestigious Swisstainable Level 1 classification, demonstrating our continuous efforts in sustainable business development.
