Nachhaltigkeit bei den Besonderen Orten

20 years for sustainability

BESONDEREN ORTE are pioneers when it comes to sustainable venues and sustainable events. It all started more than 20 years ago with 100% electricity from renewable energies, organic juice and fair trade coffee. Our venues are the first in Germany to be certified according to the demanding EMAS environmental management system. We are the first company in the event industry to report according to the German Sustainability Code (DNK). In addition, we are the first to qualify as Sustainable Partner Berlin.

It is our aspiration to combine entrepreneurial activity with sustainability. It is our deep conviction that ecology, social issues and economy belong together!

100% green electricity

For more than 20 years, we have been sourcing our electricity entirely from renewable energy sources. With our own photovoltaic systems, we also produce green electricity ourselves.

Organic certified ingredients

Organic food is not only good for the environment but also healthy. They contain more secondary plant substances, more flavours, and less water. To match the organic drinks, our coffee breaks are made from organic quality ingredients.

Organic drinks

Drinks from organic farming are good for the environment and taste good. Drinks at events in the BESONDERE ORTE are certified organic according to EU organic regulations.
