Sustainability

At Diversified, we understand that being a responsible and sustainable business is essential, and our actions and decisions have a significant impact on the world around us. Our sustainability journey includes initiatives across our events and the wider business, so please explore our efforts and see how we are making a positive impact.

At Diversified we understand that being a responsible and sustainable business is essential, and our actions and decisions have a significant impact on the world around us. That’s why we have committed to working with our visitors, exhibitors and stakeholders to consider the impact our industry has on the environment and society we work in. We are striving to operate with environment and social responsibility and our goal is to create a better future for our customers, ourselves and future generations.

While there are big challenges ahead of us, we understand that little steps can go a long way and every change can make a difference. Our sustainability journey includes initiatives across our events and the wider business, so please explore our efforts and see how we are making a positive impact.

 

Minimising our Environmental Impact

• We aim to reduce the number of printed signs and use digital signage where available

• We aim to reuse or recycle all printed signage at the event

• We will recycle the lanyards at the completion of the event

• Our event registration badges are printed on recycled material and will be recycled post event

• During move out exhibitors will be provided opportunities to dispose of exhibition and stand materials via multiple different waste streams, further diverting waste from landfill

• All carpet, furniture and AV equipment provided by the organiser is hired and will be reused across multiple events before being disposed responsibly
