As one of Europe’s largest event companies, Düsseldorf Congress Sport & Event GmbH has firmly anchored the concept of sustainability in their corporate philosophy. The company regards ecologically efficient and socially responsible management as a continual process which is permanently integrated into everyday business. By implementing environmentally-friendly rules and promoting ecologically sound behaviour, Düsseldorf Congress Sport & Event has attained an exemplary level of achievement. By means of a variety of measures, the company guarantees that day-to-day business is as environmentally-friendly as possible.
Düsseldorf Congress Sport & Event is committed to minimising waste. This is achieved through the implementation of various re-use systems, in the case of floor coverings, crockery/cutlery and packaging, for example. In addition, the creation of digital brochures has enabled the implementation of a paperless workflow.
Energy plays a large role in the sustainability management of Düsseldorf Congress Sport & Event. The company uses a timer switch programme to ensure a needs-based electricity management system.
The venues are also air-conditioned and heated in an energy-conscious and sustainable way. Alternative energy sources, such as the cogeneration units in the ISS DOME and in the ESPRIT arena, are also used. The use of LED lighting, for example in the ESPRIT arena, allows an energy-optimising lighting concept. The preparation of the ice in the ISS DOME is also energy efficient and features an intelligent control and energy recovery system.
Düsseldorf Congress Sport & Event provides E-charging stations at the Mitsubishi Electric HALLE, the ESPRIT arena and at the ISS DOME for the charging of electric vehicles; these can be used not only by event visitors but also by local residents.
