Chinese organiser supports Net Zero Carbon Events initiative

Wuhan Engine Conference and Exhibition has become one of the first privately owned event companies in China to sign up to the Joint Meetings Industry Council’s (JMIC) Net Zero Carbon Events Pledge.

The JMIC’s Pledge, in collaboration with the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), aims to halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and achieve net zero by 2050 for the events industry.

Wang Qujing, chairman of the Wuhan Engine Conference and Exhibition, said: “As an organiser of the UFI-approved Central China Dental Show, we are committed to staging our events in accordance with the highest international standards and this includes reducing the negative impact our events have on the environment and climate change. We are undertaking a thorough review of our operations and policies to improve our overall sustainability performance and this has already yielded positive results.”

Wuhan Engine Conference and Exhibition has already started to integrate the capabilities of the Group’s stand design and build business, Wuhan Engine (Exhibition) Design & Engineering, to create greater efficiencies and reduce waste production at the Dental Show.
