Sustainability at the core of Pollutec's organisation

For many years, Pollutec’s team has been placing the reduction of the show’s environmental impact at the core of its organisation.

Actions to reduce waste:

  • Sorting and recycling of waste from set-up, during the show and right through to breakdown
  • Putting in place waste sorting points at aisle crossings: we can all make a difference!
  • Integration of recyclable or re-usable materials into stand design
  • Re-use of show furniture after the event
  • Repurposing of recyclable carpet by clients in industrial plastics, especially the car industry
  • Use of recyclable and/or recycled materials for interior signage
  • All the show’s communication tools use recycled materials and paper or are online
  • Collection of cigarette butts and masks by “ EcoMégot” for recycling as information panels

Actions for low-carbon energy and transport:

  • Purchase and use of green electricity throughout the event
  • Reduction of energy consumption, in particular by using LED lighting and heating controls
  • Offering exhibitors shared mobility options, provided by the show’s official service providers
  • Incentives to use low-carbon transport:
    • Publication on the Pollutec.com “Useful information” webpage of a GHG calculator for optimising travel
    • In partnership with the City of Lyon, the sale of tickets for public transport to the airport and train stations
    • Promoting the certified carbon-neutral “Eurecab” VFH solution, along with car-sharing

Actions for eco-responsible catering:

  • On-site caterers no longer use plastics but containers, tableware and packaging made from renewable and eco-compostable materials
  • The emphasis will be on organic, local and seasonal products
  • Unsold goods will be collected by the “ Le Chaînon manquant” organisation to combat food waste
  • Recycling of organic kitchen waste
