We believe in the power of events to drive lasting, scalable change. Human interaction and collaboration are key to tackling the many environmental and social challenges we currently face. Our portfolio is dedicated to advancing impact through the incredible power of events and exhibitions.
We are thrilled to announce that Frontier Events has achieved its B Corporation certification, joining a growing group of impact companies that are pursuing purpose as well as profit. Frontier Events has been certified by the B Lab, the not-for-profit behind the B Corp movement, having met rigorous social and environmental standards. Frontier Events is committed to goals that benefit a greater purpose as well as profit.
The B Corp certification addresses the entirety of a business’ operations, looking at may impact pillars including Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers. Frontier Events is now part of a 7000+ global community including well-known brands such as The Guardian, Patagonia and many more.
We believe that every business should have a positive impact beyond profit, and work hard for the planet and for the people around us. We are keen for our Shows to generate positive impact wherever they can, helping people to live more sustainably across the UK, and so we recognise that we also need to do our bit.
We are delighted to be a signatory of 1% For The Planet, which obliges us donate 1% of our revenue to environmental and social causes.
The UK events industry is worth a whopping £42billion and employs over 500,000 people. This multi-billion dollar industry is currently generating awful externalities on the environment, including enormous quantities of single use plastic waste, non-recyclable exhibition booths, and temporary activation experiences, all destined for landﬁll.
We believe that the events industry can exist for positive impact. At all our events, we employ a circular mindset to ensure our shows are either fully sustainable, or actively generating positive impact.
