ADOPTING AN ECO-CENTRIC APPROACH TO MANAGEMENT

GL events' environmental policy is organised around the Think Green programme launched at the end of 2009. It includes sixteen commitments covering the entire lifecycle of an event. With important positions in this industry, GL events has both the possibility but also the responsibility to contribute to this process.

The Group's environmental commitments concern many areas: designing events, managing sourcing and logistics, energy consumption, green house gas emissions, producing and managing waste linked to GL events' activities.
