Faster Forward

FasterForward

FasterForward is Informa’s approach to sustainable business.

Our aim is to become an ever more sustainable, positive impact business. Through the FasterForward programme, we are embedding sustainability into everything we do and seizing opportunities from helping our customers and markets do the same.

FasterForward is a structured three-part programme with ambitious commitments and a wide range of activities, covering Informa's business operations, our brands and products and our broader community impact.

When it comes to sustainability, we’re moving FasterForward.

Faster to Zero

Under the Faster to Zero pillar, we are moving faster to become a zero waste and net zero carbon business. 

To help meet the urgent challenges of a changing world, this means taking accelerated steps to reduce our carbon and waste footprint with the aim of becoming a zero waste and net zero carbon business by 2030.

Wherever we can, we are also actively helping our partners, customers and wider markets to achieve the same.

Impact Multiplier

Under FasterForward, the Impact Multiplier pillar is about the positive impact we create when we can improve access to our specialist knowledge, help people connect more efficiently and invest in our communities. 

Through the content we provide, we can help connect and inform those who struggle to access specialist knowledge and professional networks.

When they connect at our events and online, we can help customers be even smarter and more efficient with their time and travel.

Where we work in a specialist or local community, we can partner with them and invest in ways that help them succeed and create more positive impacts in turn.
