Sustainable and innovative. By conviction.

Our role as the world‘s leading trade fair entails accepting responsibility. That is why we want to express the principle of sustainability in our actions. We want to set a good example and make transport logistic more sustainable in an ongoing process, from the selection of materials and the handling of waste to the motivation of our exhibitors and visitors. Let’s join forces to make transport logistic even more sustainable.

Acting sustainably. The measures taken at transport logistic.

As the world's leading trade show, we want to set a good example.

Our priorities:

Climate-friendly stand construction

  • We make more out of less! We conserve resources thanks to not using aisle carpets.
  • We produce our forums as well as the special areas from sustainable, resource-saving materials.
  • Organise your CO₂-neutral trade fair booth directly from our partner meplan. You can either offset the complete CO₂ emissions of your selected ECO-system booth or make it even more sustainable with the "WOODï" system. "WOODï" cuts back on resources and offers you maximum flexibility when planning your booth.

Eco-friendly infrastructure

  • You can refuel your electric car at almost 50 charging stations on the exhibition grounds.
  • Sustainable waste management: we dispose of waste resulting from construction and dismantling as commercial waste for recycling  recyclable materials can thus be returned to the economic cycle.

Sustainable advertising materials

  • We reduce our print circulations and are constantly optimizing our digital advertising media.
  • For our printed advertising materials, we only use FSC-certified recycled paper.
  • We print our materials in a climate-neutral way.
  • We deliberately cooperate with printing companies that commit to the principle of sustainability.

Valuable partnerships

  • In cooperation with our partner myclimate, we make it possible to support climate protection projects for the emissions generated by travel to and presence at the trade fair.
  • Our catering suppliers rely on local supply chains.

Let’s act sustainably—and in concert!
