Our dedication to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles encompasses a wide array of initiatives that span before, during, and after FDIC International, as well as within our own organization, Clarion Events. This commitment is evident in our long-standing focus on diversity, the implementation of our attendee code of conduct, our on-site philanthropic endeavors like Clarion Cares, and our ongoing efforts to reduce waste at our events. We wholeheartedly embrace ESG principles and actively incorporate them into all facets of our operations and events. Our aim is to minimize our environmental impact, promote inclusivity and diversity, and contribute positively to the well-being of local communities.
ADVOCATING FOR AN ETHICAL AND SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Our team and vendors are committed to reducing environmental impacts, both now and in the future, at every FDIC event we host. We proactively seek ways to minimize the environmental footprint of our events by implementing sustainable practices in logistics, transportation, venue energy sources, waste management, food and beverage waste, and the materials displayed throughout the event. Additionally, we provide attendees and exhibitors with the opportunity to purchase carbon offsets to reduce their own carbon emissions.
At FDIC International, our mission is to create a transformative journey that embodies sustainability at every step. Our steadfast dedication to driving meaningful change is closely aligned with our valued partners, suppliers, venues, and dedicated team members. Together, we are shaping a more sustainable and vibrant future from start to finish.
In collaboration with our customers, we are dedicated to bolstering the communities in which FDIC events are hosted. We engage in partnerships with local organizations and universities, as well as extend our support to international non-profits. Throughout the year, FDIC International actively endeavors to establish lasting value and foster community assistance.
Clarion understands the important role communities play in helping host our live events, and we want to return the favor to global and local communities that host and are touched by our live events.
Through mutual support and a shared commitment to treating all customers with care and respect, our aim is to foster growth and fortify our communities. During our events, people and technology collaborate harmoniously to seek solutions for the most significant challenges facing industries. We are dedicated to preparing the next generation of engineering professionals while upholding the highest ethical standards for our attendees and exhibitors.
