UFI Announces Winner of the 2014 Sustainable Development Award
6/19/2014
UFI has announced the winner of its 2014 Sustainable Development competition on “Best measurement tool for effective results”. Scotland’s Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) was selected as the winner and special mentions were given to the other two finalists: Sands Expo and Convention Center, Marina Bay Sands (Singapore) and Sustainable Events (UK).

EICC Chief Executive Hans H. Rissmann OBE declared, "We are delighted that UFI, the global association of the exhibition industry, has recognised our achievement in creating a cost effective measurement tool that promotes sustainability in our business. Keeping these processes simple and at the heart of what we do means customer-driven sustainable development becomes a core competence that will not be overlooked.”

Christian Druart, Secretary of the UFI Sustainable Development Committee, commented, “This year’s theme led to a variety of quality entries. We are pleased to acknowledge the achievements of three finalists. EICC’s winning entry analytical tool measures performance and sets benchmarks for the management of energy, waste and CO2 footprint. It is a perfect example of an efficient tool developed in-house but that integrates several national and international guidelines. The jury considered that Sands Expo and Convention Center presented another best practice for their Sands ECO360 program which includes sophisticated tracking of energy consumption. Finally, the EventSustainability online tool developed by Sustainable Events provides a good opportunity for the exhibition industry in order to facilitate the measuring and reporting aspects for implementing sustainability.”

The entries of the three 2014 Sustainable Development Award finalists, and two additional entries selected as best practices during the first round of selection of the competition, are available at www.ufi.org/sdaward. Information on other UFI programmes in the field of sustainable development is available at www.ufi.org/susdev.

UFI organizes annual award competitions in the fields of education, ICT, marketing, operations and sustainable development with the goal of recognizing and promoting excellence in the exhibition industry.
