Sustainability is essential to the event organisation process. Wind energy is known for its environmental credentials – producing no greenhouse gases and using no water. As the European Wind Energy Association, we consider it our responsibility to try and ensure that our events, too, have minimal impact on the environment.
EWEA also ensures its own events are sustainable, with EWEA 2012 being the world's first certified WindMade event - meaning the EWEA 2012 Conference & Exhibition in Copenhagen was the first ever event to be labelled by WindMade as being 100% powered by wind. EWEA 2013 and EWEA OFFSHORE 2013 also received the WindMade 100% wind label.
This commitment is compliant with the requirements set out in WindMade’s newly launched ‘Events Standard’.
