The topic of sustainability is treated with the highest priority in our company. With the alpine panorama in view and Lake Constance in the immediate vicinity, which is embedded in one of the most beautiful natural landscapes and represents one of the most sensitive ecological systems in Europe, we see a great responsibility for sustainable thinking. From this aspect alone, Messe Friedrichhafen feels strongly committed to sustainability and preservation. With a variety of sensible measures that are also relevant in everyday life, we question the trade fair business in many ways. Whether waste avoidance or separation, whether energy-saving measures or measures to reduce individual traffic, whether decentralized heating, cooling and ventilation units or green catering - we don't just talk about it, we practice sustainability.
