The Upper Austria Ladies Linz is a Green Event this year! We are delighted that our tournament in cooperation with Pulswerk has not only been awarded the Austrian Ecolabel by the Ministry of the Environment, but thanks to advice from the Upper Austrian Climate Alliance, it has also been designated a Green Event Upper Austria.

With numerous measures, the women's world class tennis tournament has firmly anchored the topic of sustainability in its tournament concept. "As Austria's most important women's sporting event, we want to live up to our social responsibility and our role as a role model when it comes to sustainability - especially for the next generation, which is traditionally very present at the Upper Austria Ladies Linz," says Tournament Director Sandra Reichel.

The Design Center, to which we are returning after 20 years, is one of the first event locations in Austria to focus on green meetings and events. It is certified with the Austrian Ecolabel - just like the neighbouring Courtyard Marriott, the players' hotel. The shuttle fleet will partly consist of e- and hybrid vehicles, and the use of green electricity, green hosting for the website and vegan and regional catering options, served with reusable tableware, are also part of the "green concept".
