The Green Globe certified member recently achieved a high ranking score of 97% against the newly accredited V1.7 criteria. Proof that sustainable practices only enhance overall operations and management performance.

Steffen Jantz, Executive Director of Corporate Communications said, “We observe that show organizers and meeting planners strive towards making their events more sustainable. So do we, and the regular Green Globe audit scheme is a great help for us to measure our results and to plan future action. The recent audit has shown that we are on the right track. Among the most effective improvements we made, there is our new heat and power plant which helps to save energy and to reduce emissions, and in the long run, it will even help us to save money.”
