RESPONSIBILITY

Grand Hall Zollverein GmbH stands for responsible, sustainable and environmentally conscious behavior. Openness, honesty, trust, empathy, authenticity and appreciation form the basis of our entrepreneurial actions. Grand Hall Zollverein GmbH also stands for responsible, sustainable and environmentally conscious behavior.

The Sustainability Code "fairpflichtet" accompanies us here as a voluntary commitment to corporate responsibility for sustainability in the organization and implementation of ecologically and economically successful events.

Building services engineering

The multifunctional event location in the heart of the Ruhr region meets all the requirements of a state-of-the-art event hall. Energy-efficient and resource-saving aspects were already taken into account during the planning phase of the refurbishment:

  • Networked computer-controlled heating
    and ventilation system with heat recovery
  • Modern building management system (BMS) control system
  • fully automatic blackout system and energy-efficient LED lighting as well as insulated glass windows and heat-reducing window films
  • Digital meeting technology and recyclable furniture
  • Water quantity limiter in the sanitary area
  • Accessibility in all areas

ENERGY

Electricity, water and district heating are provided for Grand Hall by local utility companies. All measurement and consumption values are continuously checked and digitally recorded in order to quickly and efficiently identify and exploit potential savings. Energy consumption can be recorded in real time for each event and evaluated on a consumption-specific basis.

  • 100% green electricity
  • Intelligently controlled, digital load management
  • District heating connection
  • Energy efficient LED illuminant
  • Water saving sanitary facilities

THINK GLOBAL - ACT LOCAL

We order office supplies, drinking water and all consumables from fixed partners in the region. This protects the environment, reduces the volume of traffic and also promotes the regional economy.

  • Minimization of fossil fuel consumption during transport as well as distribution by regional partners
  • Promotion of the regional economy through local networks
  • Equality and transparency in remuneration through Equal Pay - guaranteed equal pay for equal work

  • Regional partner network
  • Seasonal dishes from controlled organic cultivation
  • Efficient and short transport routes
  • Effective "Just in Time" supply chains
  • Consistent use of reusable articles

RECYCLABLES MANAGEMENT

We have developed our concept for waste reduction, waste disposal and recyclables management in cooperation with local waste management companies. It is being successively expanded and optimized to cover our entire value chain and ensure a dense network of measures for recyclables management.

  • Recycling, upcycling and reprocessing of recyclable materials
  • Digital document processing - the paperless office
  • Use of reusable systems (tableware, decoration, furniture, technology, non-food catering)
  • Separation of recyclable materials Paper, cardboard, glass, packaging material
  • Food waste recycling via closed loop systems

MOBILITY

The central location and good connections to public transportation and train stations enable environmentally friendly travel, create synergies between the respective means of transportation and guarantee resource-saving arrival and departure.

  • Central location in the heart of the Metropole Ruhr
  • Situated only 15 min. from Essen main station
  • Deutsche Bahn event ticket offer for
    aCO2 neutral journey at a low fixed price
  • DB "Call a Bike Station" available at the station
  • E-mobility sharing services for cars, scooters and scooters
  • Streetcar and bus stops only 5 min. away
