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

The RWM Forest is a fantastic initiative with Forest Carbon that aims to offset the unavoidable CO2 created to make a trade show of this scale possible.

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

As we start our own journey towards sustainability, we are supporting UK woodland creation on behalf of our exhibitors – planting a tree in a woodland area in Cumbrian for every one of them.

What Is The RWM Forest?

Our partners in this programme are Forest Carbon and our 2019 and 2020 commitment comes to 1,100 trees. They cover just under 2 acres of a much bigger Forest Carbon project in the Lake District. The project is certified by independent auditors under the UK government’s ISO 14065 accredited Woodland Carbon Code, meaning quality assurance and transparency.

Why Are We Doing This?

Because we have to, and it’s only the start. As an organisation with an important role to play in disseminating innovation and best practice across the environmental sector, we want to do our bit by reducing our footprint where possible. 

We welcome any initiatives to further our commitment to sustainability.

Who Are Forest Carbon?

Forest Carbon are the UK’s leading carbon woodland developer – planting new UK woodlands for capturing carbon dioxide, and creating new ecosystems. Since 2006, Forest Carbon and partners (including Microsoft and Kier) have created over 8 million trees in 170 new woodlands, that will capture over 1.8 million tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere. RWM wants to contribute to this future carbon capture.
