Designated by Japan Government as the SDGs Future City for its active measures to combat climate change and achieve UN SDGs, sustainability has been a priority of Sapporo since its Eco Capital Declaration in 2008. Also a member of the Fair Trade Towns, in 2020, Sapporo became the first city in Japan to obtain the LEED for Cities and Communities Platinum certification, marking the highest score among LEED certified cities.
As an environmentally-conscious destination, here at Sapporo Convention Bureau we work broadly with several initiatives to integrate a sustainability perspective in the business events operations.
- Recommend programs and efforts to help reduce the environmental impact of an event.
- Offer pragmatic means to encourage action through services such as carbon offsetting.
- Help monitor change and communicate efficiently on the impact of an event in connection with SDGs.
