Sustainability is increasingly important to our attendees and exhibitors, as well as to our community. Operating IME West gives us many opportunities to improve our impacts environmentally, socially, and economically. Our team is driven to make our event more responsible and to also play a key role in helping our market improve its own sustainability. Our parent company, Informa Markets Engineering, is committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment, reducing our environmental impact at every level, and embedding those values in all business practices.
1. Inspiring Sustainable Development
Our first aim is for our events to inspire sustainable development. This is about the sustainability of the industry that our event serves. With focus on our content and partnerships, we inspire our attendees, exhibitors, and event teams to deliver a sustainable event.
3. Running a Socially Responsible Event
Our third aim is to run our events in a socially responsible manner. This requires us to think about the impact we have on the local community and whether we are being a good neighbor. It also includes how we consider the welfare of everyone at our events, how we do business in an ethical and safe manner and how we promote equality and accessibility.
FasterForward is our approach to sustainability, moving faster to become a zero waste and net zero carbon business. A series of activities and commitments carried out between 2020-2025 will ensure our events become ever more sustainable, delivering a truly positive impact to the markets we serve. We will also actively help our partners, customers, and wider markets to achieve the same.
Our FasterForward commitments include:
