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. We strive to raise awareness of sustainability issues among suppliers, our customers and the owners of the venues we use. Our approach to sustainability consists of five pillars, Content, Communities, Colleagues, Customers and the Environment.
Our five-pillar approach to sustainability is centred around Content, Communities, Colleagues, Customers and the Environment. We strive to create positive change around key issues impacting our stakeholders, and to give businesses greater opportunities to grow and transform. Our aim is to help markets discover solutions to some of the biggest challenges they face by delivering the knowledge and networks they need to succeed. We empower customers and specialist communities around the world to work smarter, make better and more informed decisions faster, and solve critical challenges in their area. Many of these challenges are highlighted within the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Our content helps our customers to work more effectively and make better-informed decisions. In order to create a positive influence, our content must be relevant, trustworthy, and accessible.
We are dedicated to understanding the needs of our customer communities, as well as the impact of our events on our neighbouring communities (those who live around our offices and sites).
Our colleagues are the driving force behind our success: we are committed to creating an open and inclusive working environment, which supports the health, wellbeing and talent of all our colleagues.
When it comes to Sustainability and our customers, we focus on two areas; Connecting people and creating opportunities for learning.
We seek to reduce our negative impact on the world around us where we can, with a firm focus on saving energy in our offices, sustainable sourcing and reducing the amount of waste which our shows produce.
More information about our sustainability work can be can be found in the 2018 Sustainability Report.
