Our commitment

During its last edition, Ecomondo has receive ISO 20121 certification!

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.

What will change? What are the new practices to be adopted? Find out in the video.

We can already observe several innovative measures at the shows, ranging from those that may seem obvious, such as collecting and recycling cigarette butts and making the fairgrounds accessible to the disabled, to others that you may have noticed, such as the absence of carpeting in the aisles inside the pavilions, which generates an environmental saving of more than 140 tonnes of carpet per year, and broader-ranging actions such as increasing installed power from photovoltaic systems and involving all stakeholders in the region.
