Sustainability is a way of life for the company. Business activity is consistently balanced with social and ecological considerations.

This is expressed in a holistic sustainability concept that defines, prioritises and sets the framework for key issues aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

We collectively make our events more sustainable.

At our events, we provide sectors with a platform for the topic of sustainability and promote the exchange of knowledge. We adhere to a high standard of sustainability when selecting our service providers. We highly value sustainable materials and products for services such as stand construction and catering. We conserve resources and emphasise a circular economy, recycling and waste avoidance.

We collectively contribute to the protection of our environment and our climate.

Our goal is to reduce the CO2 emissions associated with our business activities as well as in the areas of logistics and mobility. By implementing efficient energy management and switching to renewable energies, we will achieve climate neutrality by 2035 in line with the goals of the City of Cologne and Koelnmesse GmbH.

We collectively promote social and community involvement.

We form partnerships with our customers and other stakeholders for a socially and ecologically responsible society. We will take an active part in cross-sector initiatives and support the volunteer work of our employees. We support our staff with regard to health, further training and equal opportunities.
