Sustainability

Informa's approach to sustainability is structured around five pillars: Our Content, Customers, Communities, Colleagues and the Environment.We focus on the issues that matter most to the business and our stakeholders, and those that present growth opportunities for businesses that successfully enable positive change. Read on to learn more about each of the pillars.

We are committed to achieving a sustainable events industry, and will continue to be at the forefront of driving change.


Our Pillars

Our Content

Content is at the heart of what many of our businesses, teams and colleagues provide. Our exhibitions, conferences, digital forums, data, intelligence products, books and journals create, curate and share knowledge, enabling customers to reach better and more informed decisions. This makes content one of Informa's most significant areas of impact.

Our Communities

We set out to create value for all our stakeholders, including the communities in which we live and with whom we do business.At Informa, we think of our communities as those who live and work near our business activities - including our events as well as our offices - as well as our communities of suppliers. Our work with communities includes supporting charities and creating value for the cities that host our events.

Our Colleagues

Our colleagues, and the diversity of knowledge and skills they bring are what drives Informa's success. We have a distinct culture and identity, and a strong commitment to investing in colleagues wherever they are. The Group aims to give colleagues freedom to grow, experiment and learn, and to create an open, inclusive and stimulating environment while minimising barriers and red tape.

Our Customers

When it comes to Sustainability and our customers, we focus on two areas; 1) Connecting people: as well as curating and creating content, our businesses and brands connect people who are working in a common field and around a common topic, challenge or passion. 2) Creating opportunities for learning: our brands provide customers with the space to learn more about each other and the topics that interest them.

Environment

Informa has a relatively small direct impact on the environment, which is largely associated with carbon emissions and the use of paper in our publications.

We take action where we can to minimise our direct impact on the environment, and undertake projects to understand our indirect impacts too, such as emissions from flights that carry colleagues and customers to our events.

Where possible, we work with venues and exhibitors to reduce the waste that arises from our events and improve recycling rates.
