Uppsala as one of the founding partner in ICCA Scandinavia Sustainability Index has done quite well in achieving good results and top positions in the ranking. The sustainable work of the local meetings industry is very goal oriented and the Convention Bureau together with it's industry partners work for continous progress and leadership in the matter. We have followed the example of the municipallity in setting high goals for the convention bureau, partners and our common projects. We are most proud of engaging the accual local hosts and meetings ambassadeurs in the work of environmental, social and economical sustainabilty. Together with them we meet up in forums over the year to discuss how we all can help to progress and perform better. We aim to have all major events and congresses certified already in 2017 and we hope to get the industry to involve in social sustainability events over the year to come. 100% of the convention centres and 88% of the hotels rooms are eco-certified.
