The report highlights achievements in waste reduction, energy conservation, and sustainable practices. Key initiatives include investing in reusable signage, reducing carbon-heavy food options, employing eco-friendly transportation methods such as electric buses, and promoting sustainability among exhibitors.

Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group, emphasizes the importance of sharing their experiences with the wider industry and outlines their commitment to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2030. “Our sustainability efforts at IMEX Frankfurt and also at IMEX America are part of our wider strategy to achieve a more positive impact. As we make more progress over time, success comes from focusing on some of the fine details while looking at every decision we make through a green, lower carbon lens. Ultimately, every member of our team is accountable for this mindset shift and for championing positive change.”
