Kai Hattendorf on the progress of the Net Zero Carbon Events Roadmap

Associations, Industry Media

Six months on from the launch of the Net Zero Carbon Events Roadmap UFI managing director and CEO Kai Hattendorf spoke to Exhibition News about the progress so far.
The Net Zero Carbon Events Pledge is an organisational commitment to reducing carbon emissions by 50% by 2030, as a pathway to net zero emissions by 2050.
With more than 500 signatories and supporters all starting to report their footprint and taking steps to reduce their impact, the united efforts so far to drive down waste across the global exhibitions industry have been “pretty damn impressive” he says.
