UBM Live has demonstrated an unusual understanding of what Sustainability is and how to embed it in its organisation, considering all the Sustainability pillars in a balanced and holistic way. A truly inspiring example for the Event Industry! The commitment towards Sustainable Development starts with the higher management level and reaches all employees. The engagement with stakeholders is taken very seriously as well, causing a positive resonance across the industry. The management system has improved immensely since the early days of BS 8901 and I'm looking forward to seeing how UBM Live will take the management system to different levels in the future.
