Corporate Social Responsibility

Shaping the future, now and beyond

Conscious of our environmental footprint, we want to build a future that will be beneficial to organisers, exhibitors and visitors, but equally to our neighbours, our employees, our stakeholders, the City of Amsterdam and its residents. Our ambition for the coming years is to drive our business forward and put ourselves in a strong economic position: to innovate, create opportunities and increase out positive social impact. We plan and interact to develop the RAI and its surroundings into a green, healthy and attractive place where everyone feels welcome and at home.

We would love to work with you to take your event to an even ‘greener’ level. Our approach is designed to create value around environment, social & governance and includes goals focused on people and communities, sustainable operations, and growth.

Sustainability as a service

In order to facilitate the organisation of sustainable events, we are developing an innovative service model in line with the requirements of sustainability and environmental protection. This service model, called ‘Sustainability as a Service‘, fits perfectly with RAI Amsterdam’s commitment to innovate and move towards a circular economy, while reducing the overall footprint of the events we host and facilitate. It reflects our motivation as a host to provide organisers and exhibitors with the support they need to achieve their own sustainable goals.

The City of Amsterdam: caring for our natural resources together

By 2050, Amsterdam is a city without waste, with a very small footprint, where we have less need for resources, where the prosperity and well-being of all is a priority. A fully circular city, good for the economy, good for the environment, good for people at home and abroad.
