Our commitment to sustainability.

ASIAWATER 2022: A Smart & Sustainable Physical Event

We know sustainability is increasingly important to our attendees and exhibitors, as well as to the industry that we serve, namely the water and wastewater industry.  Running our exhibition and conferences gives us lots of opportunities to improve our impacts environmentally, socially, and economically in our host cities.  We want to make our event more responsible and play a role in helping our markets improve its own sustainability through connecting people with the networks and knowledge they want to help solve the big challenges in our sector.

To achieve our sustainable goals in running our physical event this year, we will run ASIAWATER 2022 as a Smart & Sustainable Physical Event, where we will have our physical event be accompanied by digital elements. This is a way to achieve our sustainable goals while enhancing our trade event experience and reducing carbon footprint from running our event.

In our efforts to reduce the event’s carbon footprint, we will, for example, replace our traditional printed event directories with a downloadable Interactive Digital Directory. More about our Interactive Digital Directory will be coming soon!

Three of our sustainability aims:
01. Help our industry through inspiring sustainable development

Using our content to support the sustainability of the market the event serves.

Inspiring our suppliers, exhibitors, and other stakeholders to deliver a sustainable event.

Developing market relevant partnerships.

Integrating sustainability is in the event’s content.

We organise conferences and seminars discussing on the topic of sustainability trends within the industry we serve.

02. Run the event in an increasingly environmentally responsible manner

Reducing our event’s carbon emissions.

Creating less waste.

Considering sustainability credentials of the items sourced for the event.

Ensuring the carpet, signage, lanyards, woven bags, papers and other stationaries used at the event are made from recycled materials and it is recycled or reused at the end of the event.

Carefully design our exhibition and conference areas to minimise waste.

03. Run the event in a socially responsible manner

Doing business safely and ethically.

Considering wellbeing and accessibility.

Creating a positive impact on our host cities.

Measuring our impacts.

Reducing local traffic congestion by promoting official hotels located near the event venue.

Reducing printable event materials.

Powering the event with renewable energy.

Sustainability in Informa Markets.

At Informa Markets, many of our stakeholders are clearly telling us that sustainability (social, economic and environmental) is something that is no longer a nice to have but a necessary part of any event. We want to make sure we’re meeting those expectations and we believe that being sustainable is the right thing to do.

We also recognise that it’s not just about the way we produce our events and products but recognizing that we have a role to play in providing a space to work in partnership together with our markets to inspire the sustainable development of the industries we serve. This is an ongoing process for us and we’re looking for ideas of how we can improve.
