Prague claims its first 'completely sustainable' event

More that 60% of all waste was saved in sustainability-themed event held at the Prague Congress Centre (PCC).

A ‘zero waste’ themed event was organised by "Byznys pro spolecnost" in cooperation with Zátiší Catering and the Prague Congress Centre (PCC).

The event at the PCC featured decorations and refreshments made or served on items, which were handmade from natural, reusable or already recycled materials. 

Event branding was placed on the digital navigation system of 190 LED screens in the PCC, which eliminated the need for paper.

Prague Congress Centre CEO Roman Ray Straub said: "The opportunity to host responsible companies has been a great occasion for the PCC to show that even congresses, conferences and corporate events can be organised with respect to the environment." 

Refreshments were served in biodegradable containers, with only one dining set available for each attendee. Leftover food was offered to the PCC community fridge so all employees could support the value of the zero-waste concept.

The PCC also uses water dispensers instead of bottled water. 

Set directly next to the metro station, the PCC is accessible by public transportation and so reduces carbon footprint of delegates.
