Sustainability, Environment and Innovation

Amsterdam RAI’s ambition is to lead the European conference and event industry when it comes to sustainability.
We strive to create sustainable values in a safe, healthy and environmentally-friendly setting for all the complex's staff, users and stakeholders.

We work on sustainability within many themes such as, for example, energy and climate, mobility and water. We also support organisations organise events in a sustainable manner.
We use the official core value ‘RAI achieves sustainable result’ as a means of guaranteeing our organisation’s sustainability. For many years, we have also supported AMREF Flying Doctors and the Stichting Steun Emma Kinderziekenhuis AMC [foundation to support the Emma children’s hospital] as part of an inspiring cooperation.

Our CSR policy

In the rich history of Amsterdam RAI business decisions have never been taken on purely economic grounds, social implications for the city and region have always been explicitly considered when organising and facilitating successful and hospitable events.
Amsterdam RAI is committed to sustainable leadership in the congress and events industry in Europe. We strive to be a safe, healthy, eco-friendly and accessible environment for all stakeholders of our convention centre. Ambitious yet realistic targets have been set to reduce environmental impact, which involve all parties connected to the RAI. This CSR and environmental policy is supported by our core values and an IS0-14001 environmental management system, where compliance to legislation and continuous efforts to improve the environmental performance is leading.
