The subject of sustainability is a top priority for our company. With a panoramic view of the Alps before our eyes and Lake Constance right beside us – set in astonishingly beautiful natural scenery and one of Europe’s most sensitive ecosystems – we feel a strong obligation to think sustainably. For that reason alone, Messe Friedrichshafen is fully committed to sustainability and conservation. We are examining trade fair operations from many angles, and putting in place meaningful measures that have a real impact on everyday life. Be it avoiding or separating waste, energy-saving measures, refrigeration and ventilation units, or green catering – we don’t just talk about sustainability, we practice it. And we do all of this in the city on Lake Constance that has once again been certified in 2017 as a “Fair Trade Town”, an award that will be valid for a further two years.
