For every exhibitor or sponsor RWM receives, a tree will be planted in our growing UK woodland - the RWM Forest

  • A densely packed forest of pine trees
    What is the RWM Forest?

    RWM Forest is a fantastic initiative with Forest Carbon that aims to offset the unavoidable carbon created to make a trade show of this scale possible.

    Our non-financial partnership with Forest Carbon was created in a bid to help reduce the environmental impact of our exhibition.

    Who are Forest Carbon?

    Forest Carbon are the UK’s leading carbon woodland developer who plant new UK woodland for capturing excess carbon and creating new ecosystems. Since 2006, Forest Carbon’s partners (including Microsoft and Kier) have created projects that have removed over 1.4 million tonnes of CO2 from the Nation’s air - and RWM want to contribute to future carbon capture by creating the RWM Forest.

    Why are we doing this?

    To offset all unavoidable carbon emitted over the course of the event. On current predictions, by 2029, RWM Forest will be 10 acres of woodland, containing around 10,000 trees; which will enable RWM to be carbon neutral in 10 years.

    Did you know vegetation removed an estimated 1,298.9 thousand tonnes of pollutants from UK air in 2017? According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

    As an important player in the centre of a vital industry for the ongoing battle with climate change, we want to reduce our footprint where possible, and we welcome any initiatives to further our commitment to sustainability.
