Sustainability at IM

We know sustainability is increasingly important to our attendees and exhibitors, as well as to our market as a whole. Running our events gives us lots of opportunities to improve our impacts environmentally, socially and economically in our host cities. We are committed to our events having a positive impact on people and planet. We want to play a key role in helping the industry improve its own sustainability by connecting people with the networks and knowledge they need to help solve the big challenges of the future.

Renewable Electricity

As a part of our continued commitment to the sustainability of CCE, we have switched to 100% renewable electricity for our event. This makes our electricity usage carbon neutral and significantly reduces the carbon footprint of our event, preventing the creation of 13 tons of CO2.

Sustainability at Informa Markets

Our event is part of Informa Markets and the Informa Group. Sustainability at Informa focuses on the long term impacts we have on customers, colleagues, the communities we work in and the environment.

Many of our stakeholders are clearly telling us that sustainability (social, economic and environmental) is something that is no longer a nice to have but a necessary part of any event. We want to make sure we’re meeting those expectations and we believe that being sustainable is the right thing to do.

We also recognise that it’s not just about the way we produce our events and products but recognizing that we have a role to play in providing a space to work in partnership together with our markets to inspire the sustainable development of the industries we serve. This is an ongoing process for us and we’re looking for ideas of how we can improve.
