In January 2021, DGI Byen was certified as a Green Key member through HORESTA. The membership places great demands on us as a company, to become even more aware of everything from waste sorting, sustainable suppliers to environmentally conscious choices of consumer products, energy sources and much more.
In DGI Byen, there is movement for the head, heart and feet. We have opportunities for development that promote people’s well-being. With environmentally safe care and competent employees, we hope to be an inspiration to all of those that use our city.
Initially, we focus on areas with high traffic from guests. In our conference centre, our hotel and not least in our large venue Øksnehallen (Ox hall), we have put our all into a sustainable and environmentally conscious approach with all the resources that we have.
Focus on CO2 footprint
We set requirements for our suppliers in everything from cleaning, use of chemicals to food deliveries, food waste and to the maintenance of buildings and purchases of all kinds of consumer goods. Everything matters. Read more about criteria, etc. at Green Key
