Championing sustainability at the Global Property Market

At the Global Property Market, 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

How are we building a sustainable event?

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

Social responsibility

We want the Global Property Market 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 Global Property Market will be run in an increasingly environmentally responsible manner, focusing on:

  • Reducing carbon footprint by purchasing renewable energy
  • Providing reusable bottles for hydration
  • 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

Sustainable development

Our aim is for the Global Property Market 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
