ICEM 2024, A SUSTAINABLE EVENT

As conference organizers, our task extends beyond creating memorable events.
We also have a key social and environmental responsibility.
We move hundreds of people and we know the impact that events have on the environment. Sustainability in events has become a paramount concern and the rising trend of incorporating sustainable measures into event planning is the answer to this concern and a commitment to reduce the ecological impact while maximizing the benefits.

With this in mind, the ICEM 2024 organizing committee is working for a green-oriented event, trying to adopt all possible best practices to respect and contribute positively to environment, society, and economy.

Main goals will include economic sustainaibility prioritising local vendors to support local economy and community, environmental sustainability reducing as much as possible the event ecological footprint and, last but not least, social sustainability ensuring a safe and inclusive environment for all attendees.

The following main measures are being planned to reach this important goal:

  • First of all, the hosting venue, the Politecnico di Torino, boasts a strong commitment to ecological and social sustainability. For several years now, the university has been pursuing a path of integration of sustainability in its activities: teaching, research, third mission and campus management. The path undertaken is aimed at developing the principles of sustainability in a shared and systematic strategy, in acknowledgement of the Sustainable Development Goals adopted together with the 2030 Agenda by the United Nations in 2015 (for more information visit https://www.polito.it/en/polito/sustainable-campus).
  • The conference organization will follow a paperless philosophy, prioritizing digital solutions such as digital event platform and web event APP to limit the use of paper both before and during the event. Use of printed items such as flyers, brochures, invitations, etc. in promotional activities will be minimized,.
  • All vendors, from caterers to technical equipment suppliers, will be locally selected to foster local economy.
  • Catering services will be based on local products thus enhancing knowledge of local food traditions and reducing the environmental impact of food transportation. Only tableware in reusable or recyclable materials will be used.

  • Great attention will be paid to food waste. ICEM 2024 will join the national programme “Food for Good”. Leftover food left will be donated to local charity organizations.
  • Materials for signage, decorations, exhibition will mostly be reusable.
  • A correct recycling throughout the event will be ensured by providing clearly marked recycling bins all over the Politecnico premises.
  • Local no profit organizations involved in social inclusion activities will be invited to promote their work and spread their message during the event.

With a rising global awareness on environmental concerns, sustainability in events is no more just a trend, but an imperative shift.
ICEM 2024 will join this important challenge with a strong commitment for an environmentally friendly approach to minimize the event impact on our planet

Further information on ICEM 2024 sustainable activities will be announced as soon as decided.
Stay tuned and go green!
