Championing sustainability at the Vancouver Real Estate Strategy & Leasing Conference

At the Vancouver Real Estate Strategy & Leasing Conference, 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 Vancouver Real Estate Strategy & Leasing Conference 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 Vancouver Real Estate Strategy & Leasing Conference will be run in an increasingly environmentally responsible manner, focusing on:

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

Sustainable development

Our aim for the Vancouver Real Estate Strategy & Leasing 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.
  • Developing close partnerships with charities, companies, and associations and giving them a platform to promote their work in the field.
