RWM Green Show Plegde

Green Footprint

Currently the largest, soon to be the greenest.

RWM 15 is renowned for being the largest event for waste management and resource efficiency in Europe, but now we are striving to become the greenest. smallsteps

This year we will be assessing the carbon footprint of the event with partner Carbon Clear. 

Working closely with suppliers, exhibitors and visitors, a number of procedures are being put in place to reduce our carbon footprint, including using recycled and recyclable carpets, reusing the electrics system and furniture, and much more.  It doesn’t end here, the event will be held at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham (NEC), significant as NEC was the winner of the ‘Eco Award’ at the 2015 Exhibition News Awards and since 2012 it has sent zero waste to landfill, with 80% of RWM’s waste recycled.

We cannot stress how committed we are to reducing our carbon footprint and will not finish here.  The three year plan is just one step in the right direction for us and we encourage all of our suppliers, exhibitors and visitors to join us on our journey.

Our employees are united in an approach to substantially reduce our carbon footprint and have pledged to take steps to reduce their own.  Here are some of those pledges:

“I will bring my own shopping bags and STOP buying plastic carrier bags and any items with too much packaging.”


”My pledge is to recycle more of my unworn clothes instead of throwing them away, and by the end of this year I plan to be an active volunteer in my community by joining the local fundraising group that works towards creating a 'greener Godstone!”
