Taking action to ensure a sustainable future

Decarbonising the events industry, together

At RX, we’re serious about sustainability. We are founding members of the Net Zero Carbon Events pledge to make our company, our events and the wider events industry net zero. We commit to being net zero by 2040 and to make a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. In 2023 we published our pathway to net zero, setting out our reduction strategy with key milestones for all our events.

Given the complex nature of our supply chain and the emissions associated with a show, it is only by working together as an industry that we will be able to reduce our impact. We are building a company of net zero heroes to take action and ensure a sustainable future. It’s only by working together as an energy industry that we will achieve our goals.

Sustainability is a key factor, and this year, we’re working to make our net zero goals inclusive of all visitors and exhibitors, for the most carbon friendly All-Energy and Dcarbonise ever. With 92% of exhibiting companies already taking measures to reduce their event impact on the environment, we are diving into new practices this year on how to make stands more sustainable, as well as taking measures to recycle more, and decarbonise the supply chain.

Our main focus for our sustainability this year lies in reducing our consumption of disposable items, and instead investing in new methods of sustainability, like reusable lanyards, badge holders, and more. If you’re interested in learning more or have an affinity improving the carbon footprint of your company, come together to exhibit with us in May 2024.
