Jönköping is rich in natural scenery and resources. Lake Vättern is a pure clear water lake, located in the city center. This is Europe's fifth largest lake, included in the EU network nature of protection, Natura 2000 and this is from where we receive our daily drinking water. The area Östra Vätterbranterna was named a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2012. We are proud to have this model landscape for the coexistence of man and environment, reconciling the conservation of biodiversity with its sustainable use. Jönköping, together with a large number of private companies, public agencies, nonprofit organisations and Jönköping University, plays an active part in the regional Climate Council. The goal is set to produce more renewable energy than we consume by the year 2050. Each year the Climate Council hosts one of the largest climate conferences in Sweden.
We are proud to have three excellent meeting venues in Jönköping, all of them with a sustainability certification. Using our natural resources is obvious to us, and one example is how the meeting venues use the cool water of Lake Vättern in their cooling system. Most of the hotels, venues and activities in Jönköping are within walking distance, giving our guests a chance to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
In Jönköping we know that a rich and easily accessible outdoor life prevents illness and contributes to increased environmental commitment. With that in mind outdoor activities are made accessible to the public using the natural resources in our surroundings. An important part of the city’s infrastructure is made up of green areas such as nature parks for recreation, leisure, socializing and biological dispersal corridors. Jönköping is also a Fair trade city since 2009.

About the Global Destination Sustainability Movement

The Global Destination Sustainability Movement (GDSM) brings together the sustainability pioneers of the business and leisure tourism world, working with destinations to co-create their tourism and events strategies, benchmark and improve their sustainability performance and transform value chains in order to catalyse regeneration.

Our purpose is to engage, inspire and enable the business events and tourism industry to become more sustainable and regenerative.
