Sustainability at the
EUBCE 2024 in Marseille

EUBCE priority action points

Catering

Our standard catering menu is predominantly vegetarian. 75 % of the ingredients are procured from local suppliers, with menu crafted around the availability of organic and seasonal produce.

We emphasize the use of reusable crockery and cutlery and are actively working to replace disposable plastics with compostable or biodegradable alternatives

Food donation

EUBCE works with the local association Isabelle Mon Refuge’.
Food surplus will be donated on a daily basis.

Printed material

We have significantly reduced the amount of printed material at EUBCE.

We are producing only the EUBCE 2024 Pocket Guide, in a small format, compact and containing only essential information.
It is printed on recycled paper from FSC-certified forests.
FSC certification ensures that forests are managed in a way that preserves biodiversity, maintains strong conservation values, and monitors the environmental and social impacts of forest management.

The bags are made from recycled materials, and leftover lanyards are collected after the event.

Waste management

We are working to cut down on waste during and after the event.

Sorting bins are available across the venue and are clearly marked.
