CSR initiative

CSR initiative

Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris have made a pledge to support the industry
and its members as they transition towards responsible,
sustainable production and management techniques.

ISO 20121 Certification

Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris, like all events organised by Vinexposium, is certified ISO 20221.

Awarded in June 2019, the certification stems from a CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) initiative rolled out for several years and aimed at reducing the environmental impact and maximising the local social and economic benefits of events, through a series of practical activities.

From pens and notebads to totebags and lanyards, wherever possible, the organisers opt for responsible products, primarily made from recyclable materials.

Reusing items and materials

The organisers offer the opportunity to give fixtures and materials used for fitting out and decorating stands at the event a second life. These include totems, counters, light fittings and glass cabinets.

This system provides exhibitors with a chance to limit waste and offer their resources to local structures (associations, artists’ collectives, social and cooperative companies…)

Sorting the main waste

Glass bottles, corks and cardboard boxes used during the event are retrieved, sorted and sent for recycling by specialist service providers.

A number of areas for depositing the different types of waste are available for exhibitors and visitors to the event. They are clearly signposted and easy to access.
