Our environmental impact is primarily in the areas of energy, transport and waste. We therefore try to reduce our impact in these areas in particular, but also in other areas, as far as is technically possible and economically feasible. To comply with and exceed current environmental legislation is a matter of course. Our environmental vision is to become the greenest facility of its kind in Sweden, through our own work in parallel with the influence of both suppliers and customers and visitors. The diploma is issued by the Environmental Steps in Stockholm and is based on international ISO140001 and national environmental standard Swedish Miljöbas.

Environmental awareness is great in the meetings industry. So great that Kistamässan together with leading companies and organizations within the Swedish meetings industry formed the Swedish Chapter of GMIC. Green Meeting Industry Council (GMIC) is a global non-profit organization that started in the U.S. in 2008, and through research, education and influence leads the development of sustainability in the meetings industry.
With the founding of GMIC Sweden, we now have new opportunities to work with several major players in the industry working for sustainability issues at the national level. Kistamässan want to influence the development of the meetings industry, where environmental perspective will have an increasingly important role.
Other founders of GMIC Sweden: Gothenburg Convention Bureau, Dubai Convention Bureau, MCI Sweden, Stockholm Convention Bureau, Stockholm International Fairs, the Swedish Exhibition and Visit East Sweden DMC.
