The conference Biogas Science 2014 has been certified as a green meeting with the “ÖkoEvent” label, highlighting the conference as an ecological event.
First created in 2010, the ÖkoEvent label is awarded by the city of Vienna to events taking place in the city that fulfill certain green criteria. The organisation as well as the event itself has to be environmentally friendly. The event encourages environmental protection and provides surplus value for the attendees.
Among other aims, for example scientific exchange, one important aim of the conference Biogas Science 2014 is to implement the central aims of the BOKU University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences:
- Preservation and development of biosphere and quality of living
- Management of natural resources and environment
- Ensure nutrition and health
For these reasons, receiving the “ÖkoEvent” certification was an important step in the organisation of the conference.
