ISO 20121 CERTIFICATION
Like all events organised by Vinexposium, Vinexpo Asia is certified ISO 20121.
The certification was awarded in June 2019 and stems from the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) initiative rolled out over several years. Through a number of practical measures, it aims to reduce the environmental impact and maximise the local, social and economic benefits of the events.
From pens and notebads to totebags and lanyards, wherever possible, the organisers opt for responsible products, primarily made from recyclable materials.
REUSING ITEMS AND MATERIALS
The organisers offer the opportunity to give fixtures and materials used for fitting out and decorating stands at the event a second life. These include totems, counters, light fittings and glass cabinets.
This scheme offers exhibitors an opportunity to limit waste and donate their resources to local structures (associations, artists’ collectives, social and co-operative companies).
SORTING THE MAIN WASTE
Glass bottles, corks and cardboard boxes used during the event are retrieved, sorted and sent for recycling by specialist service providers.
A number of areas for depositing the different types of waste are available for exhibitors and visitors to the event. They are clearly signposted and easy to access.
