HAMBURG, Germany, May 16, 2011 - Holding the title of European Green Capital 2011, Hamburg is
the hotspot for climate experts from all over the world: international
trade-fairs and top-class conferences will be dealing with renewable-energies
, responsible consumption and concepts for enhancing sustainability in
Europe's metropolitan regions.

One of the first highlights will be the "goodgoods" trade fair
(27 - 29 May), Germany's first major trade fair for sustainable
consumer-products. The "goodgoods" will showcase "good" products and services
from the fields of living, fashion, technology, mobility, nutrition and
health. (

A highlight in the field of green-technologies will be the
H2Expo (8 - 9 June), an international conference and trade-fair, presenting
recent trends in hydrogen-technology, fuel-cell-technologies, and topics such
as electrical-drives and hybrid-systems. (

September will see the largest international gathering of the
photovoltaic solar energy industry. The EU PVSEC (5 to 9 September) is the
world's most important forum for academics, the industry and professionals
from the photovoltaic-branches. (

From 14 to 15 September, international port and environment
experts will meet at Hamburg's Green Port Congress, which will focus on the
question of how modern European ports can be operated in a sustainable
fashion. (

A magnet for visitors will be the Hamburg Climate Week (23 to
30 September), during which Hamburg will showcase its expertise regarding
climate protection. An interactive theme-park in Hamburg's city centre will
inform visitors about topics relating to climate change.

The Intelligent Cities Expo (8 to 10 November) will mark the
closing of the Green Capital year. Politicians, urban planners, energy
suppliers and experts from the field of transport, finance and communication
will discuss approaches to energy efficiency, resource protection and
sustainability. (

One of the decisive factors for Hamburg receiving the title
was the city's climate protection scheme. As a growing port and industrial
hub, Hamburg has successfully reduced its CO2 emissions by 15 percent since
1990. By the year 2020, CO2 emissions are planned to be further reduced by 40
percent. (
