For many years now, NürnbergMesse has been committed to using resources responsibility, ensuring equal opportunity, and expanding its venue sustainably. In 2021, it anchored these many different initiatives and projects in a sustainability strategy, setting goals for the future.
To work out just where NürnbergMesse is situated in matters of sustainability, what projects are already getting results, and where there is still potential for improvement, a cross-functional sustainability team analysed the results of current initiatives and set goals. The result was the Sustainability Compass – a signpost pointing the way towards a wholly sustainable exhibitions company.
The first step was an all-inclusive strategic analysis. Where are the areas where the company should act, in-house and outside? On that basis, ten areas for action in sustainability that are significant for NürnbergMesse were identified and their relevance to the company was defined in a materiality matrix.

NürnbergMesse believes that the way it holds events offers special potential for helping to protect the climate and the environment. That is why it is steadily expanding its efforts to make its trade fairs and other events more sustainable.
