Does [DMO] report on its sustainability performance?

Stockholm are just about to adapt a new Event strategy where sustainability is one of the key factors/ economic, environmental as well as social sustainability. In 2015 the first event that the City organizes themselves, the Stockholm Culture Festival, was eco-certified. But even without the aim to eco-certify an event, it is easy to do the event sustainable in Stockholm, as this is the way we like to do it. Almost every corner of Stockholm is easliy accessible by public tranport, many of the major sites are within walking distance from the hotels and most hotels are eco-certified.

The City of Stockholm works strategically around four different areas: A city that holds together where everyone can grow, a cohesive city bustling with life and movement in all parts of the city. The public welfare should be the basis for quality of life and security for residents in all stages of life. A climate smart city characterized by the stillness of nature as well as the intensity of a big city, and that has smart solutions that makes it easy to live environmentally friendly. An economically sustainable city where the starting point for economic policy is to create an equitable and sustainable city. Stockholm shall be characterized by a positive climate for innovation, and the city will be a key node in the global network of successful cities that attract international entrepreneurs, students and visitors. A democratic sustainable city where the locals are involved in the development of the city and feel connected to their city. Stockholm will set an example in the protection of human rights. All this is mirrored in many different rankings, where Stockholm often show very good results.

Stockholm was the first-ever city to be designated European Green Capital by the EU Commission in 2010. The main reason cited for the award was Stockholm’s integrated administrative system, which guarantees that environmental aspects are considered in budgets, operational planning, reporting and monitoring. Or in other words: just about everything that happens in Stockholm does so with sustainability in mind. 83% of all the hotels in Stocholm are eco-certified and 87% of the hotels are easily accessible, either within walking distance or by public transport to the major congress- and exhibition centers. Most of the venues are also eco-certified, which makes it easier for meeting planners to organize sustainable meetings. Swedavia, who runs the airports has a goal to reach zero fossil carbon dioxide emissions from their own operations in 2020 and Stockholm's goal, set by the City Council, is that Stockholm shall be fossil fuel free by 2050.
