Sustainability Management

Being one of Europe’s major event organisers, Düsseldorf Congress GmbH has firmly anchored the sustainability mindset in its philosophy. The company regards an ecologically efficient and socially responsible approach as an ongoing process that forms part and parcel of daily business. Regarding the implementation of eco-friendly rules and the promotion of ecological behaviour Düsseldorf Congress has reached a level considered exemplary for others. With a multitude of measures the company ensures that daily business operations are as environmentally friendly as possible.

Waste Management

Düsseldorf Congress focuses on waste avoidance – achieved by using reusable systems such as floor coverings, crockery and packaging. On top of this, the production of digital brochures saves paper in workflow handling.

Logistics und transport

  • Local public transport: together with its partners Düsseldorf Congress offers attractive local public transport packages. At many events visitors can use inexpensive combined transport tickets to travel/return. Incidentally, admission tickets can be used in the entire area of the local transport authority.
  • Vehicles: Düsseldorf Congress has started to gradually change over all of its company-owned vehicle pool to e-mobility to bring down emissions.
  • Traffic management: to ensure optimal traffic flow to the Messe and CCD Congress Center Düsseldorf, Düsseldorf Congress has installed a traffic routing system in the city.  


Energy plays a principal role in sustainability management at Düsseldorf Congress. At all venues the company depends on a demand-driven power control via timers.

Green Meetings at CCD Congress Center Düsseldorf

CCD Congress Center Düsseldorf has joined the “fairpflichtet” Code. “fairpflichtet” is a word-of-honour based sustainability code and/or a voluntary self-commitment for all parties involved in the German-speaking meetings industry.


The aim is to continuously improve sustainability in ecological, social and economic terms. Ten guidelines summarise the code and reflect the qualitative objective: striking a balance between economic, ecological and social aspects.
