Nature, events and community – these are the three main fields of action for Koelnmesse’s sustainability activities, which it will realise holistically. All measures and ideas have the aim of becoming a marketplace that makes maximum resource conservation possible during trade fair operations.
“It is a challenge. However, we are approaching this situation with vigour and have a clear goal of becoming climate-neutral by 2035”, says Gerald Böse, President and Chief Executive Officer. “To do this, we must reduce CO2 emissions, save resources and convert to renewable energies”, adds Böse, specifying the key objectives at hand. The United Nations’ sustainable development goals (SDG) serve as a framework for these and numerous other activities at Koelnmesse and are the basis for Koelnmesse’s future sustainability strategy.
