EcoProfit is an asset for both the environment and individual companies

Messe Congress Graz Betriebsgesellschaft m.b.H.

With the merger of the town hall, the congress centre, the takeover of the ice-rink and the UPC ARENA, mcg | Graz has linked the modern with the traditional event locations in Graz. The commitment to Environmental Business Management has long been a concern of the company which is why mcg | Graz has been participating in the ECOPROFIT® programme of the city of Graz since 1998.

Measures implemented and savings made

  • Agreements and arrangements made with the Grazer Linien (public transport system, Graz) and the Park & Ride facilities led to a reduction of the CO2 emissions by 1,116 tons between 2006 and 2009
  • Optimisation of the in-house waste logistics and the commissioning of new disposal partners: a reduction of residual waste by 52t per year (39%); costs could be reduced by 8,000 Euros per year
