Championing sustainability at the Calgary Real Estate Forum

At the Calgary Real Estate Forum, we are committed to running events that are both environmentally sustainable and socially responsible. Here is a breakdown of how we are embedding sustainability in everything we do.

Faster Forward with Informa

FasterForward is Informa’s approach to sustainability, moving faster to become a zero waste and net zero carbon business. 

A series of activities and commitments carried out between 2020-2025 will ensure our events become ever more sustainable, delivering a truly positive impact to the markets we serve. We will also actively help our partners, customers and wider markets to achieve the same.Our FasterForward commitments include:

  • Become carbon neutral across our events by 2025
  • Halve the waste generated through our events by 2025
  • Embed sustainability inside 100% of our events by 2025

How are we building a sustainable event?

We believe a sustainable event focuses on three main aims...

Social responsibility

We want the Calgary Real Estate Forum to be run in a socially responsible manner. To do so, we are focusing on:

  • Doing business safely and ethically.
  • Considering wellbeing and accessibility.
  • Creating a positive impact on our host cities and measuring our impacts.
  • Supporting sponsors and partners in donating to local and industry-related charities.

Environmental responsibility

The Calgary Real Estate Forum will be run in an increasingly environmentally responsible manner, focusing on:

  • Encouraging attendees to bring reusable water bottles to fill from hydration stations provided at the event.
  • Providing some reusable water bottles for those who forget.
  • Decomposable name badge holders and recycling lanyards.
  • Creating less waste by reducing printed programs and offering reusable giveaways.
  • Considering sustainability credentials for every item sourced for the event.

Sustainable development

Our aim for the Calgary Real Estate Forum is to promote long-term sustainable development - in the way that we run the event but also in how it's implemented in the market as a whole. We are committing to: 

  • Using our content to support the sustainability initiatives of the real estate market.
  • Close partnership with SustainableBIZ.com – Canada’s leading edge media on sustainability.
  • Facilitating discussions on pertinent topics including ESG, sustainability, impact investing, diversity & inclusion, gender balance, & more...
