Denmarks development as sustainable meeting and event destination

Since hosting the United Nations Climate Change Conference in December 2009, Copenhagen and Denmark has undergone a tremendous development as a host destination for meetings and events. A few year back, 12% of the hotel rooms in Copenhagen was eco-certified. Today, 63% of the hotel rooms in the city have a third party eco-certification.

Michael Luehrs from MCI Sustainability Services and President-elect of the Green Meeting Industry Council (GMIC) caught up with Convention Director Steen Jakobsen of Wonderful Copenhagen Convention Bureau during EIBTM 2011 in Barcelona to talk about the journey.
