EnerGaïa, an eco-friendly event
As it is dedicated to renewable energy and the transition to a low-carbon world, Forum EnerGaïa has a duty to lead by example in terms of sustainable development. This is why Forum EnerGaïa is continuing to pursue the actions that it has implemented since 2017 and upholding its policy as an eco-friendly event.
- A reduction in the consumption of energy, water and paper;
- Limitation and control of waste generated by the organisation of the event (reduction, reuse and recycling of waste),
- The promotion of green transport modes,
- The introduction of locally-sourced and seasonal catering;
- Initiatives to raise the awareness of partners and the public to environmental issues.
By adopting this approach, Forum EnerGaïa pursues the short-term aim of becoming an eco-friendly event.
