FEA achieved the highest score in the Sustainable Exhibitor Program at IFMA’s World Workplace. All exhibitors were invited to participate in the Sustainable Exhibitor Program which recognizes the outstanding efforts of exhibitors who successfully demonstrate sustainable practices. This voluntary program seeks to raise awareness of sustainable exhibition practices and allow recognition of each organization’s environmentally responsible actions. Read more on IFMA’s web site.
The exhibitor entries were objectively evaluated on the following six categories:
- The exhibiting company’s/organization’s sustainability policies
- Exhibit materials
- Travel, packing, shipping and freight
- Printed materials and giveaways
- Recycling and reuse of exhibit materials
- Sustainable products and services
FEA has a Business Development Sustainability Policy which builds on their corporate Sustainability Policy to meet the company sustainability goals. FEA’s Corporate Sustainability Officer (Maureen Roskoski) and marketing group worked together to achieve a score of 71 points (out of 80 points total) for Platinum Certification. FEA is proud of this achievement and will continue the sustainability effort through all of the trade shows and marketing efforts.
