    • Sustainable mobility : 5 charging points for electric vehicles on the PE8 parking, and clean vehicles available for employees.
    • Sustainable building : green roof, solar chimney, heat pump and ventilation natural, low energy consumption building, regulation of rainwater harvesting, synthetic glazing and blinds to regulate natural light, reducing impermeable surfaces.
    • Circular economy : waste was sorted and collected on a few events in 2018
    • Biodiversity : installation of beehives in the exhibition centre, and abundant green spaces.

  • Zero waste with a commitment to French Red Cross in 2018 : the French Red Cross teams were allowed to tour the stands on the last afternoon of the show to ask exhibitors for their unconsumed products during stand dismantling.
    In total, 2 tons of products were collected.
    We thank the exhibitors for their generosity and the volunteers of the Red Cross for their availability.
