Sustainability at UBM

 

Being an ethical, sustainable business is central to how we behave, how we make decisions and how we do business every day.

There are five key elements to our sustainability agenda:

 

People: We recognise the importance of engaging, motivating, training and supporting our people

 

Communities: We support the social communities in which we work - those local to our offices as well as those local to our events

 

Environment: We manage UBM's business in a responsible way, reducing our environmental impact whenever possible

 

Customers: We collaborate and engage with our customers on sustainability

 

Governance: We organsie ourselves to run our business responsibly and ethically and manage risk appropriately

Sustainability at our events

 

We strive to raise awareness of sustainability issues among our suppliers, our customers and the owners of the venues we use.
