All-in modular stands are re-used from one edition to the next, which significantly reduces purchase and waste emissions. As transport of all-in stands is grouped, this model also reduces transport emissions. In some cases, our all-in stands are stored in our venues and do not even require transport.
Our events are compact and usually last no more than two days. This means the carbon footprint is lower than traditional trade shows.
Proximity to local markets
Most of our events are aimed at regional or national markets. Most of our visitors come from within a radius of less than 75km.
Through digitalisation and the use of new technologies like the Smart Badge (allowing visitors to collect material digitally), we’re significantly reducing paper waste.
The Paris Agreement is adopted at the COP21. It is considered a historic achievement in international efforts to combat climate change, as it brought together nearly all countries in a common effort to address a global challenge.
Easyfairs signs the Net Zero Event Carbon Pledge, committing to achieving net zero by 2050 and halving greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. This marks the most inclusive collaborative action to tackle climate change within the events sector.
We launch multiple surveys for key stakeholders and deliver employee engagement and awareness campaigns.
Our first greenhouse gas emissions baseline is calculated for 2018-2019. This results in concrete targets and a Net Zero Roadmap covering both our events and venues.
We introduce our ESG Scorecard to monitor and assess the sustainability efforts of our events, enabling us to set benchmarks and drive progress in our commitment to environmental responsibility.
We launch the ESG Academy, a dedicated online learning channel aimed at providing our teams with comprehensive knowledge and skills in sustainability.
We initiate a large awareness campaign to foster inclusivity, diversity, and equity within our organisation.
Great news! A new greenhouse gas emissions assessment conducted for 2022-23 reveals a 33% reduction in our group’s carbon footprint since 2018-2019.
We adopt our new Code of Business Conduct to set ethical standards, foster transparency, and uphold our reputation as a responsible corporate citizen.
