Sustainability lies at the heart of Informa and we think about it in
three ways: our operations and practices as a business; the role we
play, as a knowledge and information provider, in helping customers
and communities learn more, do more and thrive in a changing
environment; and the impact we can have in making markets more efficient

Delivering sustainability, now and into the future

FasterForward is Informa’s approach to sustainable business.

FasterForward is our approach to sustainable business. It commits us to a series of activities between 2020-2025 that will ensure we move FasterForward to become an ever more sustainable, positive impact business.

For us, sustainability is about being responsible over the long term by increasing the positive impacts our operations, products and colleagues have, and ensuring ongoing viability, growth and success.

When it comes to sustainability, we’re moving FasterForward.
