Hannover Congress Center takes home regional CSR Award

Hannover Congress Center takes home regional CSR Award ( LOS ANGELES, California - Top performing Green Globe member, the Hannover Congress Center (HCC), in Hannover, Germany, took home the regional CSR Award this year for their outstanding sustainability concept. This award is handed out by the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ GmbH), Pro Hannover Region, and the regional investment bank association (NBank), to celebrate outstanding responsible business practices.

The judges were impressed by the manner in which the HCC has clearly recognized that a fully integrated sustainability program must do more than just improve performance of the business. Considerable efforts have been made to educate staff and reach out into the wider community, creating a venue clearly dedicated to both, personal responsibility and informing, empowering and improving its surrounding environment. The involvement and great support of HCC of the “Special Olympics” was highlighted during the ceremony.

For years, the HCC has demonstrated a firm commitment to meet the highest international standards in regards to the environment, conservation and corporate social responsibility. This “Cultural Monument of National Importance” integrated the philosophy of sustainability at all levels, making it the core of the corporate strategy of the company.

“We are delighted about this prestigious recognition,” commented Joachim Konig, Director at the HCC. “This award is very special, as it represents an honor from businesses in our market. It shows that we are on the right track with our approach. Our team members really live sustainability, and it is our goal to continuously improve our efforts to set an example for the entire industry.”


The Hannover Congress Center combines tradition and innovation in a perfect way. This ancient “Stadthalle” (town hall), with its historic “Kuppelsaal” (cupola hall) and large festival rooms, features a range of spacious multi-functional halls, and more than 30 meeting rooms. All in all, the HCC offers a total of 13,000 square meters meeting space, with 15,000 seats available. The Stadtpark invites to relax in between events, and adjacent to the park, the upscale Congress Hotel with 258 rooms is situated.
