We won’t beat around the bush – we’re part of an industry that’s a huge contributor to environmental pollution. Since our beginning in 2002, sustainability has been a central component of our business strategy; we’ve been on a green mission, designing and building reusable and recyclable exhibition stands while taking our clients on the journey with us. We have a responsibility to make every aspect of our business as sustainable as possible and are committed to reducing our impact on the environment.
When looking into carbon offsetting schemes in 2022 we decided to focus on ‘blue carbon’. Our research showed that the planting of mangroves and conservation of wetland areas has far more effective impact on Co2 absorption than terrestrial forests.
Through One Tree Planted, we planted over 1,165 mangrove trees in 2022 via their restoration projects across Asia and Latin America. We now work alongside Evertreen on tree planting projects, that are not only focused on environmental benefits but also on granting stable employment for local communities of farmers involved in the projects.
We assist clients in comprehensively assessing the ecosystem influencing their event’s carbon footprint, fostering collaborative efforts to craft sustainable event briefs. Our design philosophy centres on the circular economy, championing waste and pollution reduction, product and material longevity, and recycling.
By repurposing materials and recycling resources, we reduce waste, conserve energy, and minimise our carbon footprint. Our innovative design solutions incorporate reclaimed materials, breathing new life into discarded elements while minimising the need for new resources.
Our approach begins with eco-conscious material selection, opting for recyclable and low-impact materials. Energy-efficient lighting and equipment reduce power consumption, while waste reduction strategies, such as reusing stand components and recycling materials, contribute to sustainability.
Furthermore, promoting eco-friendly practices and partnering with eco-conscious suppliers demonstrate a commitment to sustainability, aligning the exhibition industry with responsible environmental stewardship.
