Sustainability at CMWorld

We know sustainability is important to our attendees and exhibitors, as well as to our market as a whole. Not only are we committed to running our event in an environmentally and socially responsible way, we also want to go further and inspire the sustainable development of the industry we serve. By connecting people with relevant networks and knowledge at our event, we’re helping them to solve some of the biggest challenges facing the sector to ensure long-term, sustainable growth.


We believe a sustainable event focuses on three key aims:

  • Inspiring Sustainable Development
  • Running an Environmentally Responsible Event
  • Running a Socially Responsible Event

We focus on:

  • Using our content and partnerships to help support the sustainability of the market our event serves
  • Inspiring our suppliers, exhibitors and other stakeholders to deliver a sustainable event
  • Reducing our event’s carbon emissions
  • Considering the sustainability credentials of the items sourced for the event
  • Doing business safely and ethically
  • Ensuring our event is a welcoming environment for all and to encourage diverse and inclusive voices and topics.
  • Considering wellbeing and accessibility
  • Creating a positive impact on our host cities


Here are our top tips on how you can help make this event even more sustainable.

  1. Reduce the brightness of your screen and remember to hibernate your computer when not in use to help reduce your energy usage.
  2. Make sure you take a break at regular intervals throughout the day. Getting away from your screen for a minute to stretch your legs, staying hydrated and having a healthy snack will improve your ability to get the most out of the event.
  3. Be aware of our code of conduct and help us ensure a welcoming atmosphere of respect for all.
  4. When talking to exhibiting companies remember to ask them about the sustainability credentials of their business and their products.
  5. Most event resources have been designed to be easily viewed online or via a mobile device so please avoid printing where possible to help reduce paper waste.
  6. Consider eating a healthy meat-free lunch during the event, it’s good for you and for the planet.


Last but not least, we are proud to continue The Orange Effect Foundation as Content Marketing Institute’s official charity partner. OEF mission is empowering children and young adults with speech disorders to effectively communicate through therapy, education, research and technology resources.

Our event is part of Informa Connect and the Informa Group. Sustainability at Informa focuses on the long term impacts we have on customers, colleagues, the communities we work in and the environment.

Many of our stakeholders are clearly telling us that sustainability (social, economic and environmental) is something that is no longer a nice to have but a necessary part of any event. We want to make sure we’re meeting those expectations and we believe that being sustainable is the right thing to do.

We also recognise that it’s not just about the way we produce our events and products but recognizing that we have a role to play in providing a space to work in partnership together with our markets to inspire the sustainable development of the industries we serve. This is an ongoing process for us and we’re looking for ideas of how we can improve.

More information about our work so far can be found on the including our latest sustainability reports.
