Environmental and Sustainability Policy

We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance. The 2019 Annual Events are organized in line with the EEB’s Environmental and Sustainability Policy. Participants are encouraged to use the most environmentally friendly mode of transportation possible. We favour sustainable caterers with high social responsibility standards that use seasonal and locally sourced bio-products whenever possible. We only serve vegetarian and vegan food to reduce the environmental impact of EEB events and meetings. We will strive to minimize left-overs and look for solutions where they can be donated to charities or similar.
