The UFI Sustainable Development Award

The events industry has a special role to play in tackling climate change. Events provide the meeting places and marketplaces to work on solutions to the climate crisis. However, events also generate a significant carbon footprint, and the industry has a responsibility to minimise this impact and contribute to global endeavours to reduce carbon emissions.

In the context of the Net Zero Carbon Events initiative launched in 2021 to drive the events sector towards net zero, the 2022 UFI Sustainable Development Award is designed to recognise organisations that have already implemented a successful GHG Emissions reduction program for their operations related to events.

The application is open to all companies from the exhibition industry (organisers, venues, service providers, associations), whether they are UFI members or not. Collaborative entries, involving groups of organizations, including some from outside the exhibition industry are welcome.
