For a company wishing to be successful over the long term, it pays to focus on sustainability – in environmental, economic and social terms. We at Messe Basel and the Congress Center pursue this goal in our day-to-day work as well as through the special measures that we implement to this end. These include the Green Team we have set up among our own staff.

With our Green Team, we are setting out not only to promote environmentally aware behaviour within our own company but also to inspire our customers to attach greater importance to this issue.

Economic sustainability

Exhibitions, congresses and events bring enormous economic benefit to the region in which they are held. We are ensuring that it stays this way for a long time to come through a balanced mix of our own events and those of third-party organisers.

Environmental sustainability
