We have already been working for many years to reduce our carbon footprint. We obtain our entire electricity supply via hydropower! The principles of sustainable corporate governance and ethical action are firmly anchored in our company by way of the "Fair2Future" project. We place a particular focus on the spheres of energy, mobility and waste disposal.
We offer exhibitors and visitors the perfect setting for organizing their event as sustainably as possible. And that already starts on the way to the Exhibition Center. Optimal public transport links, electric charging stations in all parking areas around the Exhibition Center grounds and climate-friendly mobility offerings such as e-shuttle and hydrogen-driven buses to the events help make for a reduced carbon footprint.
At the same time, we are continuously developing our processes and, above all, our beautiful exhibition grounds with sustainability in mind, and working consistently towards our company's ultimate objective of 100-percent CO2-neutrality.
As a leading trade fair company, we are dedicated not only to top-tier events but also to consistently driving our sustainability strategy forward.
