Impact launches green meeting package with the aim of reducing carbon footprint

30.09.2023

Thailand: Impact Exhibition Management has made sustainability a priority for many years to help save the planet. It all starts from the inside out.

The company incorporates sustainability into its business operations, which include the installation of LED lightings in all of our buildings, a venue mobile application upgrade to enhance customer experience, the use of eco-friendly materials to serve customers instead of Styrofoam boxes, and food waste segregation to name a few. In October 2022, the company introduced its “Sustainable Meeting,” which was designed to help ensure that the company can achieve its sustainable development goals and encourage like-minded organizers, exhibitors, and customers who are willing to hold their events sustainably, garnered positive feedback from organizers and exhibitors, and reduced approximately 663 kg of carbon dioxide. 

Taking bolder steps to solidify Imact introduced Green Meeting Package provides a structure mechanism to leverage key industry resources dedicated to sustainability. Exhibitions, concerts, and meetings, and conferences can go green by:

- discouraging the use of tablecloth, chair covers, straws, and plastic bottled water at meetings and at a group service point and using green air conditioners for all exhibition halls.

- separating waste in separate bins, opting for reusable trash cans, and using environmentally friendly paper bags, hand soap, and dishwashing liquid. Offering plant-based protein menu options and donating excess food from the events to various foundations as a way to contribute to society.

- writing a carbon footprint report and keeping track of a process from set up to tear down, which includes energy, water, and gas consumption as well as food waste. The numbers in the carbon footprint report are calculated based on the guidelines formulated by Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau and Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization.

Although the business events industry, including meetings, exhibitions, conventions, concerts and entertainment, and celebratory events, is undoubtedly an important piece of the economic puzzle, it generates significant emissions and outputs wasteful materials; that’s why, we strongly urge exhibitors and customers to organize events in a socially responsible way to make the world greener.
