ATD Conference & Exhibition to achieve zero carbon/zero waste by 2025

We are working to minimise the impact our operations have on the environment and on the communities we serve with measures including the reduction of waste from single use plastics and printed materials; the offset of our carbon emissions with the use of renewable energies; and empowerment of the communities with educational events and purpose-driven partnerships.

Our efforts have no expiry date as we aim to continue to strengthen these measures and adding new initiatives to inspire our colleagues and customers.
