Within the company, Fiera Bolzano has been following the principles of sustainability for years and has made numerous investments to make its daily business more sustainable. First of all, the photovoltaic system on the roofs of the fairground car parks is worth mentioning: The four photovoltaic systems installed at Fiera Bolzano produce the considerable amount of 1.2 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year, which theoretically already cover the entire needs of the fairground, saving the city of Bolzano 600 tons of CO2 emissions every year.
Even the company car of Fiera Bolzano is now only electric. Other milestones: the collaboration since 2017 with Volontarius, an association that distributes unsold food to those who need it in the catering outlets of the exhibition centre. The catering establishments at the fair also support the principle of sustainability and 100% of them use reusable tableware.
"We are already one of the leading trade fairs in Italy in terms of sustainability," says Thomas Mur, director of Fiera Bolzano. "However, we are constantly working on further development. We are convinced that focusing on sustainability in all its nuances, rather than slowing down or demoralizing, generates innovation and development".
