visit.brussels aims to position the Brussels-Capital Region on the local and international stage as the capital of 500 million Europeans.
A veritable “world city”, where every day more than 180 different nationalities live together, the Brussels metropolis is the most cosmopolitan in Europe. As the capital of diversity and openness, Brussels is also a capital where the good life and creativity reign.
Drawing on these intrinsic strengths, visit.brussels strives to develop sustainable and high-quality tourism that respects the city and its inhabitants.
visit.brussels is committed to ensuring that its actions are beneficial, in the long term, to each of the three pillars of sustainable development: people, planet, profit.
This sustainability is cross-disciplinary and is the cornerstone of all projects and partnerships carried out by visit.brussels.
Our values tie in with the region’s DNA and attributes, and sustainability is integrated into our practices. Our commitment to a sustainable approach takes many forms:
- our eco-dynamic company label (a regional label that encourages and recognises organisations that limit their environmental footprint);
- participation in the Global Destination Sustainability Index (the leading sustainability benchmarking and improvement programme for meetings and events destinations around the world);
- an ambition to develop sustainable practices in agreement with the UN Sustainable Development Goals;
- providing support to regional programmes, initiatives and policies: the Good Food strategy, the Regional Programme for a Circular Economy (PREC), the Good Move mobility plan, the Air-Climate-Energy plan, the Low Emission Zone, etc.;
- a desire to raise awareness among stakeholders and particularly among actors in the sector
