Our position. Sustainable and innovative. By conviction.

Sustainability—our path to the future

Being part of our society, we, Messe München, are dedicated to our social and ecological responsibilities. Therefore, sustainability is an integral part of our corporate strategy.

We are committed ourselves to become CO2 neutral by 2030—20 years ahead of the goal set out in the Paris Climate Agreement and 10 years earlier than targeted by the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry (AUMA).

For this purpose, we have developed a sustainability strategy tailored to the exhibition industry. As part of our holistic sustainability program, we continuously initiate projects, which aim to reduce the CO2 emissions of Messe München.

We strive for sustainability for ourselves and our customers. We are actively promoting sustainability at our events.

Role model function

Our role as the world‘s leading trade fair entails accepting responsibility. That is why we want to express the principle of sustainability in our actions. We want to set a good example and make electronica more sustainable in an ongoing process, from the selection of materials, making a climate protection contribution for unavoidable CO₂ emissions and the handling of waste to the motivation of our exhibitors and visitors. Let’s join forces to make electronica even more sustainable.

With its solutions, the electronics industry is making a significant contribution to achieving CO2 neutrality. In organizing electronica, too, we are consistently pursuing a comprehensive sustainability concept. Support us in this and let's shape a more sustainable future together

Acting sustainably. The measures taken by electronica.

As the world’s leading trade fair and conference for electronics, we not only want to set an example, but point the way.

Our priorities:

Climate-friendly stand construction

  • In order to conserve resources, we have decided to not use aisle carpets anymore.
  • We produce our stages, the Start-Up Area and other electronica areas from sustainable, resource-conserving materials.
  • Organise your CO₂-neutral trade fair booth directly from our partner meplan. You can make your booth even more sustainable with the "WOODï" system. "WOODï" cuts back on resources and offers you maximum flexibility when planning your booth.

Climate-optimized trade fair management

Our goal is to make electronica increasingly sustainable. However, CO2 emissions can not be avoided while preparing and holding an event. Therefore we are supporting various climate protection projects in cooperation with our partner myclimate.

One example on how we reduce our CO₂ emissions is the elimination of aisle carpets. This saves around 484t of CO₂, which is equivalent to 1,000 economy flights from Munich to Mallorca.

Eco-friendly infrastructure

  • Climate-friendly travel: Choose the environmentally friendly public transport option for your journey to the exhibition grounds. Thanks to the seamless connection between the exhibition center and Munich's public transport system, you will always be right in the middle of the action. This not only protects the environment, but also your wallet.
  • You can refuel your electric car at almost 110 charging stations on the exhibition grounds.
  • Sustainable waste management: we dispose of waste resulting from construction and dismantling as commercial waste for recycling—recyclable materials can thus be returned to the economic cycle.

Sustainable advertising materials

  • We reduce our print circulations and are constantly optimizing our digital advertising media. For example, we are no longer printing an exhibition catalog for the fair, but only a visitor guide with a much smaller volume.
  • For our printed advertising materials, we only use FSC-certified recycled paper.
  • We print our materials in a climate-neutral way.
  • We deliberately cooperate with printing companies that commit to the principle of sustainability.
