Our contribution to sustainability: paths to a greener future

Sustainability is a key pillar of our business strategy and a central topic in the future of Deutsche Messe. For us, sustainable business means acting in ways that are ecologically and socially responsible.

Working towards a carbon-neutral future

Our goal: carbon neutrality by 2035! Come with us on our journey!

The climate transition is one of the most important challenges of our time. We can’t afford to wait until tomorrow – we have to act now and make our contribution to more sustainability!

We have been working on reducing our carbon footprint for many years now. 100% of our energy is produced from hydro power. Sustainable business management and ethical trading are firmly anchored in the company’s “Fair2Future” project. We focus on the areas energy, mobility and waste disposal in particular.

We offer exhibitors and visitors the perfect framework for shaping their event to be as sustainable as possible. This starts as soon as they arrive. Ideal links with public transport, e-charging pillars in all car parks around the fairground and climate-friendly mobility services such as e-shuttles and hydrogen buses to the events contribute to reduction in our carbon footprint. At the same time, we are continually developing our processes, and our beautiful fairground above all, to match our sustainability aims, and we are gradually moving our company closer to carbon neutrality.

We take responsibility

Energy and waste disposal

We aspire to an efficient use of energy and waste reduction. To achieve this, we regularly review our processes to keep our ecological footprint as small as possible.

Mobility & infrastructure

We encourage the use of public transport and rely on environmentally-friendly movement alternatives on the fairground itself.

With our generous green spaces and areas designed to be close to nature, we offer a pleasant atmosphere for events at the heart of the city. We strive to contribute to biodiversity.

Social benefits & responsibility

As a responsible event organiser, we are aware of our social responsibility and support social projects and initiatives. Anchored in the region of Hanover, we value working together with local partners.

event management

Our event management is based on clear sustainability principles and includes measures which contribute to a reduction of waste and avoidance of environmental pollution, among other things.
