SUSTAINABILITY

EICMA S.p.A. has decided to undertake making the 2019 Edition of the Show sustainable from the environmental and social point of view, analysing the characteristics of environmental and social impact in planning and organizing the event, including in order to involve and influence all the stakeholders participating in good behaviour and practices, before, during and after the event.

For this reason, EICMA has decided to have the sustainable management of the EICMA 2019 show certified according to the international standard ISO 20121 – Sustainable Event Management.

Throughout the event, there will be a fixed reference point in the office building of Fiera Milano for all the stakeholders who need any explanation and information on the activities in the programme and the ISO 20121 certification.


EICMA will thus be the first show in the world in its sector (bicycles and motorcycles) to be certified according to the ISO 20121 standard.

On 8th November, EICMA S.p.A. obtained certification of standard ISO 2021 from TUV NORD Italy.

USE YOUR HEAD EVEN WHEN HAVING FUN
Keep behaving sustainably even when you are having fun, not only at home. Don’t waste water or energy in the facilities you are in.

NO CIGARETTES ON THE GROUND!
Don’t throw your cigarette stubs on the ground, once put out, they can be put in the containers for waste or, if present, in the special containers for cigarette stubs. If you can, use a pocket ashtray.

MOVE SUSTAINABLY
