We are not there yet, but we work hard and consciously on it and we want you as a exhibitor, customer or visitor to feel involved in our environmental work.
The environmental and climate issue is always taken into consideration and is an important parameter in all our decisions.
The electricity used by Elmia is 100% renewable and does not contribute to any CO2 emissions.
Together with Jönköpings kommuns Fastighetsutveckling AB an active collaboration is ongoing to reduce our climate impact. For two consecutive years, we have reduced our energy consumption by 11% per year and we are now actively pursuing this work together.
Elmia also works together with ECIS AB to map the entire energy consumption in the properties. Measures are being taken to further reduce energy consumption through new systems on how we control ventilation, heating, cooling and lighting. In several of our exhibition halls, together with ECIS AB, we have switched lighting fixtures to LED and the work will continue during 2020.
Via pumps and temperature exchangers we use the lake water from Vättern to cool the exhibition halls. The water circulates in a closed system, and not only provides energy savings of up to 670 MWh per year. We have also been able to clear about 800 kg of freund from our cooling system.
Elmia is running a project together with Jönköping Energy to set up solar panels, energy storage and energy efficiency, as well as expansion of charging stations for electric cars on the fairground and facilities.
Active work is underway to increase recycling, reuse and reduce waste and to improve waste management.
We are working on developing and lifting new sustainable and climate-smart stand products and services. These are always important parameters when choosing partners and suppliers.
