We constantly review our actions with regard to sustainability. Our specially trained sustainability consultants will be happy to support you in the selection and implementation of measures for the organisation and realisation of your "Green Meetings/Events". Since 2010, our hotel has been successfully Green Globe certified several times. For us, it is an important corporate task to contribute to relieving the burden on the environment.
That is why we will continue to offer solutions for our customers and work with partners to ensure that Messe und Congress Centrum Halle Münsterland remains a truly sustainable event center in the future. You can find our sustainability strategy for the coming years here.
Key achievements since 2006
Energy consumption reduced by 50%
We have been working on reducing our energy consumption for a long time. For example, we have been able to almost halve our electricity consumption since 2006. Stadtwerke Münster energy audits help us with controlling.
Change to LED, timers and motion detectors
Our exhibition halls and most of our premises are equipped with LEDs. Through precise light and reflection analyses, we were able to reduce power consumption to a third through this replacement. Where possible, we have installed motion detectors and timers to reduce energy.
100 % green electricity
We purchase 100 % green electricity from Stadtwerke Münster. In addition, we constantly monitor our electricity consumption through regular "Lastganganalysen". In this way, we are constantly optimising ourselves.
AC - in an environmentally friendly way
Our air-conditioning system cools a large part of our premises through the hybrid use of our cold fire-fighting water. The water tank is located under the building and keeps the water naturally cold accordingly. With a consumption of 430 kilowatts, the chiller requires only a third of the power needed by a conventional air conditioning system of this strength.
We encourage event organisers to pay attention to waste separation. Therefore, we weigh your residual waste and charge for it transparently. Waste is disposed of separately at our materials yard. With our waste compactor, we also reduce the volume of waste so that the containers have to be collected less often. We also work with alternative disposal service providers such as Trash Galore. Please feel free to contact us.
Regional and seasonal catering
Our partner, Stolzenhoff Catering, offers regional, seasonal catering. For more information on sustainability, click here.
In 2004 and 2016, we successfully participated in ÖKOPROFIT. ÖKOPROFIT is a cooperation project between the municipality, the local economy and other partners from the region.
We regularly train our staff in sustainable ways of acting and thinking, e.g. through training to become sustainability advisors or energy efficiency managers. Our organisers also benefit from this, and we are happy to provide them with advice. Internal and external further training also qualifies our employees. We have joined the "100Pro Training Initiative" of our association EVVC.
Corporate value "Ecology, Commitment and networking
The value of "ecology" is integrated into the overall concept of our corporate culture. In addition we are a partner in Münsters Allianz für Klimaschutz and have signed the sustainability code of our associations EVVC and GCB fairpflichtet. We have also joined the Net Zero Carbon Events initiative.
Cleaning and water sensors
Our cleaning company uses mostly environmentally friendly, degradable cleaning agents. Contactless hand-washing faucets without water overflow are installed in the toilet facilities.
Health management and safety for our employees
We offer our employees regular health checks, massages and flu shots. Occupational safety is important to us. We have received several awards from the Unfallkasse NRW.
The CO2-footprint of your event
Protection of the environmental is important to us, which is why we are always doing our best to reduce our environmental impact and make sure we do everything in the most environmentally sustainable way.
We are happy to organise the most ecological journey possible for you: Transfer with e-buses, "Willkommen! Ticket Münster" for public transport, travel by train, free refuelling at the e-charging station on P1.
A free CO2 calculator is available from the NRW Energy Agency, with which you can calculate how climate-friendly your event is. You can calculate the CO2- footprint of your trip on the Federal Environment Agency website.
