From Plastic Waste Products to Sustainable Exhibition Stands

Sustainability in the Outdoor Industry: From Products Made from Plastic Waste to Sustainable Exhibition Stands

The environment needs it, the customers want it, the outdoor industry takes the subject seriously: sustainability! This is one of the top topics at the first OutDoor by ISPO in Munich. Visitors are very involved with this issue and so the sustainable new concept of the largest outdoor trade fair in Europe is well received, from the gigantic "plastic monster" in the entrance area of the trade fair grounds to the sustainably designed trade fair stands.

OutDoor by ISPO also sets new standards with its "Code of Conduct", which gives organizers, exhibitors and visitors concrete recommendations on how to act in a climate-neutral, resource-saving and sustainable way. This Code of Conduct was developed by the OutDoor by ISPO team together with the European Outdoor Group (EOG), the European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA) and the OutDoor by ISPO Advisory Board.

In all nine halls you can see how present the topic of sustainability is. The sustainability pioneer Patagonia in Hall A6 is particularly exciting. The company has entitled its stand with the neon sign "We're in business to save our home planet". There's no better way to say it.
