Explore Our Green Tunnel!

Welcome to the Green Tunnel, an innovative initiative that merges technology and sustainability to create a unique and eco-friendly space at our technology event. What makes our Tunnel special?


The Tunnel houses a lush vertical garden courtesy of Verdtical. This garden is not only a visually stunning work of art but also represents an advancement in sustainable construction. Verdtical is leading the way towards greener cities by integrating vegetation into urban architecture. With an innovative gardening system and advanced monitoring technology, this garden offers environmental and aesthetic benefits without compromising the building's structure.


Thanks to the integrated monitoring technology, our vertical garden is more than just decoration. Smart sensors constantly measure the garden's status, allowing precise control of watering, nutrition, and other vital aspects for plant growth. This not only ensures efficient maintenance but also creates bio-buildings with unprecedented autonomy and efficiency.


In partnership with Porter Metrics and Tree Nation, we have taken our commitment to sustainability a step further. Each person who passes through the Tunnel contributes to planting trees in the Virtual Garden of the IoT Solutions World Congress. For every visitor, we plant a tree, helping offset our carbon footprint and contributing to the growth of a greener future.


Human-centric lighting optimizes illumination by adapting it throughout the day to enhance users' health and well-being. This KNX IoT service provides the most appropriate settings for colour temperature and brightness, based on scientific principles, in major control systems. KNX IoT enables the service to be seamlessly integrated into any KNX project, such as the IOTSWC tunnel, ensuring compatibility and interoperability with any KNX LED controller. Additionally, system integrators can fully leverage the algorithms to deliver advanced, user-centric lighting experiences that adhere to international standards.


What do we do to achieve the highest sustainability?

We’re planting 4,000 trees

Our commitment to sustainability is real. That’s why this year we’re collaborating again with Tree Nation and we’re planting 4,000 trees generating environmental and social impacts in 7 different world regions, including gender equality, conservation, reforestation...

Circular Economy. We reuse

All common areas will be adorned with recycled materials, including cardboard and carpeting. At the conclusion of the event, any surplus materials used in these areas will be returned to the supplier for potential repurposing, extending their lifecycle for a third time.

Fight food waster

Any food surplus is picked up by an NGO at the end of each day, and is distributed to community kitchens.

Water Fountains

Water fountains will be available throughout the event. We encourage visitors to bring their own bottles to minimize the use of disposable cups or bottles. We aim to reduce waste and promote sustainability by providing convenient access to refill stations for hydration.
