Our commitment to ESG encompasses a wide range of initiatives before, during, and after DISTRIBUTECH as well as within our own organization, Clarion Events. From our years-long focus on diversity and our attendee code of conduct, to our on-site donations such as Clarion Cares and our commitment to reducing waste at our events, we fully embrace ESG principles and put them in practice whenever and wherever we can. By integrating ESG principles into every aspect of our operations and events, we strive to minimize our environmental footprint, foster inclusivity and diversity, and contribute to the well-being of local communities.
SUPPORTING A MORE ETHICAL AND SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Our team and our vendors are committed to mitigating environmental impacts whenever and wherever we hold DISTRIBUTECH today and in the future.
Where possible, we look to limit the environmental impact our event has and to be as sustainable as possible with logistics transportation, venue energy sources and waste management, food and depot waste, and the display material we use throughout the event. We offer our attendees the ability to purchase carbon offsets to reduce their own impact on carbon emissions and allow exhibitors to sign a sustainability pledge securing their commitment to their own sustainability standards.
At DISTRIBUTECH, we are on a relentless mission to usher in a transformative experience that radiates sustainability at every juncture. Our unwavering commitment to instigate meaningful change is steadfastly aligned with our valued partners, vendors, venues, and dedicated staff. Together, we forge a brighter, greener future from inception to culmination.
