ÖKOPROFIT® Certificate 2017
Kongresskultur Bregenz has successfully completed the Basic Programme on ÖKOPROFIT® certification. It was presented with the ÖKOPROFIT® Certificate on 13 April 2010 at a ceremony during which 121 Vorarlberg companies received their re-certification. The festival house has since been pleased about its yearly re-certification – as also in 2017.
“We may live in a state in which natural resources such as water are still available in sufficient quantity, but this should not prevent us from conserving and appreciating them. The ÖKOPROFIT programme shows what our possibilities are to protect the environment and cut costs in the process,” federal state minister Karlheinz Rüdisser said, underlining the importance of certification.
ÖKOPROFIT® stands for sustainable environment management and for cost-saving improvements in Vorarlberg’s businesses. The project is supported by the federal state of Vorarlberg, the town of Dornbirn, the Vorarlberg Confederation of Industry, the Vorarlberg Environmental Association and the Vorarlberg Chamber of Trade and Industry. Currently more than 174 businesses in Vorarlberg have been equipped with this practical environmental management programme by ÖKOPROFIT®. About 16,000 employees in Vorarlberg work in an ÖKOPROFIT® certified organization – about 12 per cent of the salaried workforce.
