Exhibit Footprint


Improve your Environmental Performance

with our complete Carbon analysis, specially developped for exhibition & events activities


You are a show organizer or an exhibitor

And you organize or participate in international shows & events on regular basis.


We calculate and analyse The carbon footprint generated by your professional involvement during one or several specific shows.


You reduce your carbon emissions

Thanks to our audit, you'l be able to perform your business with a valuable green touch, to offset your emissions and positively act for sustainability.

Our method

What we can do for you

  • We calculate what the global warming impact of your activities at an event or a conference will be
  • We help you to reduce your CO2 emissions by changing habits and encouraging use of the most ecological materials available.
  • We give you the ability to build a dynamic and positive image for your business that will impress and inspire your client base and your own staff keeping you one step ahead of the competition.

How we will do it

  • We will quantify the CO2 emissions directly generated by the participation of your company to the show by analysing the size of each carbon footprint sector by sector (travels, building the stand, transport...).

    How ? : by you answering as accurately as possible our dedicated technical questionnaire and sending us on line the plan of your stand or any exhibition area. Our calculation system assigns an average Carbon value to the data you submit to the questionnaire. We then evaluate the Carbon footprint of each material and each activity undertaken before and during the event, and the storing or disposal of the stand after the event.

  • We will produce reports based on the principle of "And what if...?" (what if you had used that material instead of the one you chose; what if you had travelled by train instead of the by plane?...).
  • The Exhibitfootprint team will provide evidence of the ecological impact of the technical, aesthetic and economical choices you made during the preparation of your participation at a conference.
  • We will propose simple, individual and proven solutions to reduce your CO2 emissions.

References & technical data

Our analysis is based on the technical principles of major international organizations for the environment, such as ADEME (French Agency for the Environment and Energy Control).

All our Carbon data comes from official research results, from environmental data published by INIES, or from data collected from a select range of exhibition professionals (designers, manufacturers, freight agents, travel specialists, etc) with worldwide experience.

A few green words

Carbon footprint

The Carbon footprint of a specific product or a specific activity evaluates the amount of CO2 emitted to generate such product or activity. When analysing the carbon footprint of a product, to be as acurate as possible the calculation has to take into account all emissions: since the extraction of raw materials, the various stages of transformation and the final transport to the place where it will be used. When studying an activity, the calculation consists in adding up the Carbonfootprint of each material and action that have been essential to it.

Gold standard

The Gold Standard is an independent label internationally rewarded which purpose is to distinguish hight quality carbon offsetting projets. The integrity of these projects, with regard to their environmental performance and sustainable development, is the main focus. The opportunity to contribute to Gold Standard Clean Development Mechanisms translates to funding for initiatives that demonstrate real ecological performance and long-term sustainability.

Greenhouse gases

Greenhouse gases (GHGs) are those that contribute to the 'greenhouse effect', trapping heat from the sun in the earth's atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is the main greenhouse gas, but there are a number of others, including methane (CH4) and Nitrous Oxide (N2O).

Kyoto protocol

Following the original "Earth Summit" in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was introduced and has now been ratified by over 140 countries. In 1997, the Kyoto Protocol was signed: an international agreement that defines the targets for industrialized countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
