AI Regulation Forum
12 September 2024
Novotel Brussels City CentreBelgium

Championing sustainability

At AI Regulation Forum we are committed to running an event which is both environmentally sustainable and socially responsible.

How are we going further?

Informa is constantly seeking to improve and expand on our sustainability initiatives.

This event is powered by renewable electricity, helping us in our journey to net zero.

As a part of our continued commitment to the sustainability of our events we have switched our event’s electricity usage to be from renewable sources, therefore making our electricity usage carbon neutral and significantly reducing our events carbon footprint.

How are we going further?

More sustainable event delivery

We are minimising the use of printed documents at the event with delegate packs being available digitally through the conference app, making document packs not only more environmentally friendly but also easier to store and use after the event.  

More sustainable travel to the event

Attending AI Regulation Forum allows you to consolidate your travel requirements by providing the opportunity to meet everyone you need to, in one place.

We are encouraging our colleagues, speakers and delegates to choose more environmentally friendly travel options. Travel across Europe by train has never been easier so please do check Rail Europe and Eurostar for the best options.
