Net Zero Carbon Pledge

Montgomery Group is a signatory to the Net Zero Carbon Pledge which was launched at the COP 26 conference in Glasgow in November 2021 and further developed at the COP 27 conference in Sharm El-Sheikh in November 2022.  The Pledge commits Montgomery Group to:

  • Publish our pathway to achieve Net Zero by 2050 at the latest, with an interim target in line with the Paris Agreement’s requirement to reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions by 50% by 2030.
  • Collaborate with partners, suppliers and customers to drive change across the value chain.
  • Measure and track our Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions to industry best practice.
  • Report on progress at least every two years.
Our Shows

Our Shows

Our event teams are already working to reduce GHG emissions with the aim of achieving improvements year on year.  These cover the entire show cycle and include:

  • Collecting data for waste, energy and water from venues and where this data is not available work with venues so that the collection of data becomes possible in the near future.
  • Work with contractors and venues, ask questions and where possible encourage the use of renewable energy, LED lighting, water stations for bottle refills, zero to landfill policies, reusable stands and furniture, lower quantities/ reusable/ recyclable carpets, source locally, use zero waste materials, reusable/ recyclable signage and eliminate use of single use plastics.
  • Make available recycle stations at our events and donate any unused food and drink samples to charities.
  • Encourage contractors to reduce journey emissions by consolidating as much as possible, use eco-friendly vehicles and encourage visitors and exhibitors alike to cycle, walk or use public transport when commuting to and from our events.
  • Reduce direct mail wherever possible.
  • Replaced paper show guides with pocket planners wherever possible.
  • Remove dates from signage wherever possible.
  • Request that media partners restrict to a maximum of 500 magazines per partner on site wherever practical.
  • Reduce volume of promotions bags at each event, audit waste and ensure they are made from sustainable materials.
  • Continue to monitor technological developments in digital badging, do not use plastic wallets and increasing use of inhouse lanyards which can be reused.

As an exhibitor to one of our events we encourage you to think about the following:

Before you arrive at the event

  • Use your website, the event website and electronic media to promote your attendance at the event.  Do not print if possible but if you need to print use recycled paper and vegetable-based inks. Do not laminate if possible as that makes the paper non-recyclable.  Don’t put dates on prints so that they can be reused.
  • Book a hard wall build with us or one of our appointed contractors who only use sustainable construction materials.
  • If you wish to build your own walls, then use contractors who only use sustainable construction materials such as FSC-certified wood and recyclable alternatives to polystyrene.
  • If you are going to ship materials, use reusable, recyclable or biodegradable packaging.
  • If you are going to give samples at the event, only bring what you will need, especially if you can’t take it back to reuse at a later date.
  • Think ahead – talk to us and ask for the procedures that we have in place for recycling during build up, open and breakdown. 

Whilst at the event

  • Choose public transport, cycle, or walk to the event. Consider staying close to the venue.  If you must drive, consider car sharing.
  • Dispose of the compostable items (and food) in the food service wash up areas and compost bins. Try not to contaminate cardboard with food waste.  Use the recycle bins available throughout the venues correctly. If you have bins on your stand, make sure to use clear plastic bin bags/ liners instead of black or opaque, this allows for the cleaning team to have visibility of waste to ensure correct disposal or recycling.
  • Conserve Energy by using energy efficient monitors, projectors, and equipment where possible and turn off appliances to reduce power consumption when equipment is not in use.

Before you leave the event

  • Donate any leftovers either to local charities or to charities which are collaborating with the events.
  • Use the recycling facilities at the venue in the appropriate way and breakdown any packaging so that it takes up less space.
  • Leave your badge and lanyard in the collection box for recycling at each exit.
