The organisers of "Sal23urg" have placed great emphasis on sustainability and have been certified as a "Green Event" by the Climate Alliance Austria and the province of Salzburg.
This certification underlines the importance of sustainability in sport and the appreciation of the "Sal23urg" event.
As a Green Event, the tournament took place in the climate-positive North Sports Centre, which meets the Gold Standard and generates more energy than it consumes when the weather is right.
Surplus energy was given to neighbouring businesses. In addition, the hall is completely barrier-free, which guarantees an inclusive experience for all visitors.

- Federal Ministry for Climate Protection, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology
- Federal Ministry of Arts, Culture, Civil Service and Sport

Furthermore, the federal provinces of Burgenland, Carinthia, Lower Austria, Upper Austria, Salzburg, Styria, Tyrol, Vorarlberg and Vienna, the Austrian Federal Sports Organisation (BSO), the Sports Union, ASVÖ Vienna, the organic farmers' association Bio Austria and many more.
Their support shows that sustainability is perceived as an important issue in the sports industry and helps to position "Sal23urg" as an outstanding example of sustainable sports events.
Excellent cooperation with the City and Province of Salzburg
The cooperation with the city and province of Salzburg was excellent. All partner companies involved, including hotels and other infrastructure, were enthusiastic about the topic of sustainability and actively contributed to making the event as environmentally friendly as possible.
This cooperation was a decisive factor for the success of the "Sal23urg" and shows how important the commitment of all participants is for a sustainable future.
Impressed participants and the World Federation IFF
Both the International Floorball Federation (IFF) and the almost 200 participants from 6 countries (Norway, Great Britain, Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Austria) were very impressed by the sustainability concept of the "Sal23urg" event.
Short distances, arrival, departure, shuttle on site with sustainable public transport, a well thought-out waste concept, accessibility in the sports venue and organic catering, offsetting the ecological footprint on site are just a few aspects that distinguish the tournament in terms of sustainability.
The positive feedback from the participants and the association underlines the importance of the sustainable orientation of sporting events and shows that such initiatives are appreciated and recognised by those involved.
