Events that are both environmentally- and people-friendly
To make sure that business tourism contributes to the harmonious development of our planet, our city, its inhabitants and its businesses, the City of Lyon and Lyon Convention Bureau wanted to make a commitment. More than just words, we want to see sustainability, common sense and practical measures develop in Lyon, in terms of both events and business tourism.
More and more tourism professionals are integrating environmentally-friendliness into their specifications. Lyon has made a commitment and, with its Convention Bureau, wants to help event organisers to develop more environmentally-friendly practices, a human-centred commitment and strong values, meaning this sustainability can be taken into account when conventions and meetings are being planned in Lyon.
Lyon now has more service providers looking to meet this need. Our aim is to particularly promote partners in Lyon who have adopted an environmentally-friendly approach, and share advice and tools with event organisers to increase the number of sustainable events in the city.
Because we must all work together to switch from a disposable to a sustainable society.
Our objective: working side by side, consuming sustainably, and recycling waste-free. Step by step, we want the events organised in our city to become more environmentally-friendly and join us in our commitment to environmentally-friendly business tourism.
