Eco-friendly travel
Florence is a people friendly city where everything is walking distance: hotels and B&B, historical buildings, venues for events and the Congress Citadel are a few steps ones from each others. Don't you want to walk or rent a bicycle? No problem! Florence has a great public transport network that covers all the historic centre and connect the city to the suburbs with various transportation options. So, follow our "motto": Respect the environment and travel green!

Neutralize CO2 emissions

Thanks to the partnership between FCVB and Treedom today it is possible to create completely eco – sustainable events by calculating the CO2 emissions produced and planting a living tree to fully offset the environmental impact produced by the event. Click here to read more!

Less Paper

In order to reduce waste and energy use, FCVB offers to event organizers and delegates arriving in Florence a set of online tools as a Room Manager System for hotel bookings, a Congress Card with lots of discounts and a branded new FCVB App for smartphones and tables. The FCVB App allows the event organizers to upload the program, congress venues and technical details about the events. Moreover, it is a very useful "quick tourist guide" for delegates: it offers an events calendar, FCVB Social news, the Congress Card and lots of interesting information about Florence.

Green Catering

We encouges the event organizers to choose a green catering which can minimize the waste production during the meals and use compostable materials as plates, cups, napkins and cutlery. Wherever possible the food and beverage served during the meeting are selected from local suppliers. Compost bins at the venue are provided to engage the delegates.

Recycling

Respecting the environment means putting on easy and little practices that can minimize and diverting waste. The Congress & Exhibition Centre of Florence engages the attendees by providing recycling bins at the congress for paper, plastics and other recyclable materials.
