Preserving the planet by investing in and enhancing renewable energy sources, popularizing and being protagonists of sustainable behavior, but not only that: during the 25th edition in 2022, Ecomondo has received ISO 20121 certification!

We can already observe several innovative measures at the shows:

  • the absence of carpeting in the aisles inside the pavillons, which generates an environmental saving of more than 140 tonnes of carpet per year
  • collecting and recycling cigarette butts
  • choosing the sustainable of the fittings with the zero waste route
  • use of wood products and derivates
  • making the fairgrounds accessible to the disabled

As part of a larger project that involves the awarding of certification to Italian Exhibition Group for Rimini Expo Centre - Vicenza Expo and Conference Centre and Palacongressi di Rimini by the end of 2023, ISO 20121 certification recognises our commitment to adopting circular economy models and spurs us on to improve as an event and as a group because an event is sustainable:

"when it is designed, planned and implemented in a way that minimises negative impacts on the environment and leaves a positive legacy for the host community" - United Nations Environment Programme.
