Rethink, reduce, reuse

The GSA is a
sustainable event.

Congress and award ceremony, but also the entire production phase at the GSA office are climate neutral. All organisational steps are reviewed and optimised with regard to environmental compatibility, energy and resource efficiency, sensible logistics and social standards.

Pioneer in its own cause.

Anyone who evaluates the sustainability performance of others must also be measured against the highest standards themselves. That is why the entire project is aligned with the principles of sustainable event production: Avoidance goes before reduction and compensation.


Our service partner First Climate.

Unavoidable event-related CO2 emissions are calculated by our long-standing service partner First Climate. In cooperation with First Climate, we also support the certified climate protection project "Uganda Cookstoves" by purchasing CO2 certificates. The aim of the project is to promote the spread of energy-efficient cookstoves in Uganda. In this way, we are actively contributing to sustainable development locally.

Rethink, reduce, reuse

Events are not "sustainable" per se. Reducing environmental impacts in particular is challenging, but instructive and effective work, which the GSA has been tackling since 2008. In the meantime, the entire event industry is in a state of flux. We want to remain a role model.

This is only possible in partnerships. Some of them have been with us since day one. Many companies and institutions, which for their part are committed to the goals of sustainable development, contribute to a forward-looking realization of the project.
