Our goal is a carbon neutral future. In fact, by 2030, we ideally want to be a carbon-positive venue in the heart of the country.
We are hard at work already to achieve this goal. Through efficient visitor flows and logistics, by generating energy from our own solar panels, through green catering, smart waste management, maximizing the use of circular building materials for exhibitions: our sustainability ambitions are reflected in everything we do. We want to achieve 50% CO2 neutrality in 2025. Where we fall short on our goal, we’re going to compensate for it.
Our new building plans are also fully committed to sustainability. With these plans, we will achieve our goal of making the Jaarbeurs the most sustainable events venue in Europe. The United Nations Strategic Development Goals are the starting point. The green roof of the new Jaarbeurs will be a perfect location to organise sustainable events.
