Virtual Events

In November 2021, the "Net Zero Carbon Events" pledge was presented at the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference - "A united pledge and roadmap for a net zero carbon future for events where Leaders from around the industry shared their commitment and alignment to fight climate change. "

To date, more than 400 entities from around the world are supporting this initiative, and Fairs and More Inc., subsidiary of the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP), is proud to be the first signatory and supporter of The Net Zero Carbon Events Pledge in the Philippines. With this milestone, we are inspired to lead the initiative in the Philippines to convene the local events industry and stakeholders through a Hybrid event entitled : The Net Zero Carbon Events Philippines, organized in partnership with the The Joint Meetings Industry Council and hosted by Somerset Central Salcedo Makati on November 23, 2022 and via Zoom.

The Net-Zero Carbon Events Philippines will be the first-ever collaboration of event organisers, businesses, suppliers, as well as corporate and civil society organisations, who are all stakeholders in the events, meetings, conferences and exhibitions industry in the Philippines to join the Net Zero Carbon Events Pledge.

Kai Hattendorf, Managing Director of UFI – The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, will be one of the main speakers to discuss The Net Zero Events Initiative, and the Priority Action Areas of the Roadmap to net zero by 2050. He will be joined by industry leaders, local government representatives and environmental advocates with the aim to bring together a wide range of industry stakeholders to:

  • Jointly communicate the industry's commitment to tackling climate change and driving towards net zero by 2050
  • Develop and present the common methodologies for measuring the industry's direct, indirect and supply chain greenhouse gas emissions
  • Construct an industry-wide Roadmap towards net zero by 2050, and emissions reductions by 2030 in line with the Paris Agreement and climate science, with support and guidance on key issues
  • Foster collaboration with suppliers and customers to ensure alignment and common approaches
  • Establish common mechanisms for reporting progress and sharing best practice.
