COP15 Event Sustainability Report

COP15 United Nations Climate Conference, Copenhagen, Event Sustainability Report

The organisation of COP15 was an inspiring example of how large events can facilitate sustainable destination transformation. Through active, positive stakeholder engagement initiatives and ongoing improvement of the event management system, the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs charted a course for success that can now serve as model for cities and event owners around the world.

The COP15 event management system took a strategic approach to sustainability that was underscored by the use of the BS8901 sustainability management system for events and by reporting triple bottom line results using the GRI guidelines. The key sustainability strategies, lessons and insights gained from organising COP15 have been developed into the Copenhagen Sustainable Meetings Protocol.
