Taking action to ensure a sustainable future

Decarbonising the events industry, together

At RX, we’re serious about sustainability. We are founding members of the Net Zero Carbon Events pledge to make our company, our events and the wider events industry net zero. We commit to being net zero by 2040 and to make a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. In 2023 we published our pathway to net zero, setting out our reduction strategy with key milestones for all our events.

Given the complex nature of our supply chain and the emissions associated with a show, it is only by working together as an industry that we will be able to reduce our impact. We are building a company of net zero heroes to take action and ensure a sustainable future. It’s only by working together as an energy industry that we will achieve our goals.

Sustainability is a key factor, and this year, we’re working to make our net zero goals inclusive of all visitors and exhibitors, for the most carbon friendly All-Energy and Dcarbonise ever. With 92% of exhibiting companies already taking measures to reduce their event impact on the environment, we are diving into new practices this year on how to make stands more sustainable, as well as taking measures to recycle more, and decarbonise the supply chain.

Our main focus for our sustainability this year lies in reducing our consumption of disposable items, and instead investing in new methods of sustainability, like reusable lanyards, badge holders, and more. If you’re interested in learning more or have an affinity improving the carbon footprint of your company, come together to exhibit with us in March 2026. 

Oi in the palm of your hand

At 2024 we launched an App, we will continue to develop the App so you can plan your days at the show and in advance. Get all the details of Oi on the App - plan meetings, access content, explore what's on and view the floorplan.​

Recycling Signage

Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in the eco-friendly printing processes used by our suppliers. Employing water-based inks, they ensure a clean printing experience without harmful VOCs. 

Our signage is designed for easy recycling, contributing to a greener future.

Sustainable stand packages

Our shell scheme stands as a versatile, eco-friendly solution, serving multiple events year after year. All light fittings feature energy-efficient LED lights, reducing power consumption and the need for frequent replacements.

In line with our commitment to sustainability, the exhibition-specific carpet is recovered post-show and recycled, repurposing it into new, environmentally-friendly products.

Recyclable items

All items provided to exhibitors and visitors will now be recyclable, including materials such as lanyards and badge holders. ​

Carry less, Collect more

Embrace a streamlined and sustainable event experience with our cutting-edge digital tools designed for both exhibitors and visitors. Say goodbye to paper waste and hello to efficiency. Seamlessly collect and manage onsite information with our innovative solutions. No need to carry around or display printed brochures and cards, have a lighter and more sustainable experience.​

ExCeL our home venue

In October 2023 ExCeL published their Sustainability Strategy, which outlines our long-term ESG ambitions driven by five key pillars that support our core business both sustainably and ethically.

The RX Sustainability Pledge for Events

As a leading event organiser we bring whole industries together which can advance sustainability – playing a role in educating and influencing behaviour with a large number of stakeholders.

Our events have an impact, and we are committed to minimising those that are negative while continually seeking ways to positively contribute to sustainable development. 

Our approach is guided by the UN Sustainable Development Goals, prioritising those where we can have the greatest impact and demonstrating leadership through programming and content across our events.
