Sustainable Meetings High Performer
This year everything is different. However, this has not stopped the AXICA team from continuing to work on the major goal to become even more sustainable. Quite the contrary: the event-free time was used to critically examine and optimise internal processes, to talk in depth with suppliers and partners and to initiate wide-ranging changes.
Many small pieces of the puzzle were moved and documented by the team in the kitchen, office and event areas. As a result, the assessment in the visitBerlin audit as a "high performer" was confirmed and even higher scores were achieved.
Alexandra Beck, AXICA's sustainability manager, is certain: "It was only because the entire team pulled together that we were able to improve. I am very impressed how our employees in all areas put their heads together and developed ideas to make AXICA even more sustainable. Vivid examples are our new organic certified buns and breads, our Diversity Day video campaign, foregoing customer gifts in favour of tree donations to Plant for the Planet, our membership in Green Chefs, an investment in the "origin fish share", the exclusive use of Original Beans' fair trade chocolate, supplies for cooking jackets made from recycled marine plastic, placemats made from compostable stone paper, the education and training of staff to become hygiene experts, protocol managers, education specialists and much more. "
With "Sustainable Meetings Berlin", visitBerlin focuses on the sustainable development of Berlin's event industry. The basis for the audit is a comprehensive catalogue of criteria that covers all areas of sustainability. As a "Sustainable Meeting Partner", AXICA therefore had to demonstrate its sustainability performance in the following four fields as part of the audit: Governance, Risk & Compliance, Economy, Environment and Society. The result of the audit: AXICA is one of only 21 companies audited in Berlin and listed as a "High Performer" on the webpage https://convention.visitberlin.de/en/sustainable-meetings-berlin.
