An environmentally responsible event
As organiser of the European Mobility Exhibition, GIE Objectif transport public is a firm believer in the importance of a sustainable development policy for events management. With this in mind, it has established a procedure aimed at minimising the environmental and social impact of the events it organises: the use of raw materials, energy and waste management.
GIE Objectif transport public has included sustainable development aspects in its specifications for providers, and encourages you to do the same in your role as exhibitors, also including your own providers in this policy.
5 good reasons for following our environmental policy
1/ Ensuring you are in line with your own company’s sustainable development policy
Increasing numbers of firms are implementing sustainable development strategies for their core business, covering social, environmental and economic issues. Incorporating these principles in the events you take part in is one way of extending this policy.
2/ Taking steps to minimise the environmental impact of the event
This exhibition is yours – and your commitment alongside us is important to us. We won’t succeed in minimising the impact of this event on the environment without your help!
3/ Bringing down your costs
Contrary to popular belief, responsible management of energy and raw materials in your communications, stand layout and events will almost certainly bring down your exhibition costs.
4/ Meeting stakeholder expectations
Stakeholders in your sector and for the Exhibition as a whole (clients, prospects, partners, visitors, journalists and others) expect you to be an example in this respect.
5/ Being seen as a pioneering innovator
This is an opportunity to find new ideas to highlight your products, services and vehicles in an environmentally-friendly manner – and that won’t go unnoticed!
As an exhibitor, your attention is drawn to three points in particular
First and foremost, responsible energy management provides economic benefits. For instance, lighting, particularly stand lighting rigs, use huge amounts of energy. Your display can be made to stand out without using so much electricity. Ask your stand installer to optimise lighting, compare technologies and find less power-hungry solutions.
The organisers will be using sorted waste management before, during and after the event. It is important that your providers (stand installers, decorators, etc.) observe the waste sorting instructions provided. Skips will be put in place near the exhibition hall; a waste sorting scheme will be used for these.
Travel by participants accounts for 75% of the carbon impact of exhibitions. When you come to Paris, travel by air rather than by train whenever possible. On site, use public transport. Paris-Expo/Porte de Versailles is easily accessible using the metro, buses, tramway and self-service bikes.
