Abstract [en]

Through research and questionnaires, the paper reviews meeting and conference facilities from a broader perspective to deeper analyze its approach to become a more sustainable organization. The study reveals an examination to determine the consumers perspective and their demand for a greater sustainable improvement on three chosen meeting facilities in Stockholm. In order to answer the framing of the questions presented for the consumers, it was relevant to use both a quantitative and qualitative method. To further distinguish and analyze the different meeting facilities and their openness for sustainable development, three semistructured interviews were held with representatives from the selected examination objects. The writers completed another three interviews with informants who had visited any of the three meeting facilities, these interviews contributed to a broader consumer perspective on the sustainable growth increase for the facilities. The interviews where complemented with a survey that was formed to investigate the demand on a sustainable conference facility. The theories that have been used are based on how organizations reveal themselves in a sustainable work environment. The empirical material was set against the theory and deeply analyzed. Lastly the conclusion could be presented. The final result from the surveys showed that consumers are asking for greater efficiency and more sustainable aware meeting facilities. However, according to the surveys made by the consumers, it showed that the inquiry for a sustainable facility was not prioritized while in the process of election. In the study, one can conclude that all of the mentioning facilities has a sustainable development approach - including policies and guidelines to promote sustainability. However, challenges and difficulties could be identified, primarily the economic aspects, since certified products contribute to a higher cost for the businesses. Also, there was a lack of knowledge and commitment regarding the advantages of a sustainable business approach, which may be due to lack of organizational structure.
