NürnbergMesse’s energy campaign has been advocating responsible handling of resources for many years now. We have planned a variety of steps as part of our environmental and energy management scheme to make the Exhibition Centre climate-neutral by 2028.
At its Exhibition Centre and the associated office buildings, sustainable construction is a core concern at NürnbergMesse. Its latest event halls, 3A and 3C, have earned Platinum certification from the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB). That iss both an incentive and a paradigm for continuing to design the site sustainably.
Water is the most precious resource of the 21st century, and NürnbergMesse is taking a number of different steps to conserve it. It intends to cut water consumption 15% by 2025. One part of the effort is to make more use of rainwater in conjunction with smart irrigation concepts for the grounds.
NürnbergMesse events are going to be even more sustainable in a number of different ways. For instance, over the coming years, less carpet will be laid. Signage at the site will be replaced by an innovative navigation and information system. And wastewater and material waste will be reduced, especially in trade fair booth construction.
NürnbergMesse plans to reduce its in-house waste accumulation 20% by 2025. A special focus will be on reusing capital goods like office furniture and reducing print products.
