The Buildings Show is committed to promote sustainability for the entire Built Environment. We work within our community to bring content that is relevant to the Design, Construction and Property Management sectors that educates on socially responsible practices to be taken back to those sectors. We also work with our exhibitors, suppliers and sponsors to reduce our Show’s impact on the environment. These current sustainability initiatives and actions are listed below for further reference:
Virtual events carry a new level of sustainability, mainly environmental, that our F2F brands have not been able to benefit from. With exhibitors not travelling to an event there is a lower carbon footprint from not flying or driving, not shipping booth materials or energy being used inside their booths. Outside of this as well the impact of some one-time use items at the event would be spared such as handouts, booth building materials, crate dumping, signage or promotional items. On the other hand, delegates would not be wearing one-time use plastic badges, consuming a printed show guide or travelling as well, whether flying or driving. Overall these elements will reduce our impact from an environmental perspective mainly with reduction in waste and overall carbon footprint
