Championing sustainability at the Edmonton Real estate Forum
At the Edmonton 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.

How are we building a sustainable event?
We believe a sustainable event focuses on three main aims...
We want the Edmonton Real Estate Forum to be run in a socially responsible manner. To do so, we are focusing on:
- Doing business safely and ethically
- Considering well-being 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
The Edmonton Real Estate Forum will be run in an increasingly environmentally responsible manner, focusing on:
- Reducing carbon footprint by purchasing renewable energy
- Encouraging attendees to bring reusable water bottles to fill from hydration stations associated with the event.
- Decomposable name badge holders and recycling lanyards
- Creating less waste by reducing printed programs and offering reusable giveaways from exhibitor stands and media partners
- Considering sustainability credentials for every item sourced for the event
Our aim is for the Edmonton Real Estate Forum 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
- Developing close partnerships with charities, companies, and associations and giving them a platform to promote their work in the field
- Facilitating discussions on pertinent topics including ESG, sustainability, impact investing, diversity & inclusion, gender balance, & more.
