Championing sustainability at Tawdheef

At Tawdheef, we are committed to running events which are both environmentally sustainable and socially responsible. From dedicated debates on the agenda, to radical changes in the way we build our exhibition - here is a breakdown of how we are embedding sustainability in everything we do.

FasterForward to zero

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 Tawdheef 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

Tawdheef will be run in an increasingly environmentally responsible manner, focusing on:

  • Reducing carbon emissions
  • Creating less waste and discouraging giveaways from exhibitor stands and media partners
  • Considering sustainability credentials for every item sourced for the event

Sustainable development

Our aim is for Tawdheef 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 of Emiratisation
  • Developing close partnerships with relevant organisations and giving them a platform to promote their work in the field
  • Facilitating discussions on pertinent topics including diversity & inclusion, ESG, sustainability, the impact on the environment & more...
