  • Printing of all communications documents (brochures, flyers, maps, programmes, invitation cards, press documents, etc.) on recycled paper
  • Paperless communication tools wherever possible, like visitor badges, replaced by a QR code; like the trade show’s floor plan and programme (printed versions are not abandoned but we print a lot fewer and incite people to use the app.)
  • Collection of the roll-ups by Ecopack Solutions, and re-use of these roll-ups to create Boomerang packaging.
  • Use of recyclable materials for the small signs at the exhibition
  • GreenTech+ lanyards made of RPET (100% recycled polyester) Responsible communication

  • Integration of recyclable or reusable materials (wood, card, etc.) in the design of stands and communal areas
  • Reuse and rental of furniture for the event : roughly 90% of the furniture is reused in the scope of our other events
  • Use of recyclable carpet in the exhibition aisles and reusable carpet tiles in certain areas of the exhibition,  
  • Discontinuation of aisle carpets, saving 8,800m² of carpeting – a full hall’s worth

  • Waste sorting during set-up, opening and dismantling, and reuse of the materials
  • Installation of differentiated waste bins in the aisles at the exhibition to sort visitors’ waste
  • Sorting now includes wood (partitions, flooring), card, brochures and a high percentage of carpet. Eurexpo provides a waste sorting guide for its clients
  • For furnishing waste, a partnership has been established with Valdélia, the eco-organisation approved by the ministry of ecology, sustainable development and energy. Valdélia recovers everything made of wood (partitions, flooring, etc.) and the furniture left at exhibitions after dismantling. This is all evacuated in a dedicated skip.
  • Plastic bottles are no longer provided in meeting rooms, a new Tetra Pak solution is in place instead
  • Progressive transformation of the materials used for manufacturing commercial signs 

  • Encouragement to use car-sharing
  • Encouragement to travel to the Eurexpo exhibition park using sustainable or public transport: tram, bus, etc. In particular, through the development of public transportation, daily service by the T5 streetcar from the center of Lyon within the Eurexpo park

  • Twice-daily verification of all the water meters to check for leaks

  • Elimination of plastic, with recyclable table sets and the on-site caterers’ use of containers, plates and bowls, and packaging made from renewable, eco-compostable materials  
  • Sorting of cardboard, PET, glass, and recovery of plastic lids
  • Priority given to supplies from organic, local and seasonal produce sources
