Sustainability at Vitafoods Asia Digital Week

Vitafoods Asia Digital Week committed to continue to embrace our brand’s sustainability agenda. We recognise our events have an impact on the environment and the communities with whom we work both physically and virtually. With this in mind, we aimed to:

  • Support to the industry by sharing the right content to foster sustainable progress
  • Run events considering the environmental implications of our operations and inspire our partners to follow best practices
  • Empower our community to thrive, stay connected, inspired and energised

We will continue to work towards achieving zero carbon and zero waste and driving the sustainability agenda at both of our 2021 hybrid shows, Vitafoods Asia and Vitafoods Europe.

Knowledge to foster progress

Producing events that are relevant and accessible to all with an aim to sharing the latest knowledge to inspire innovation and encourage discussion.

Content can be accessed on-demand at the event to allow our international community to fit the event around their own schedule.

Partnerships that count

Working together to enable meaningful connections to have a positive impact in the industry and bring ‘more health to more people’.

In 2020 we partnered with The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), working closely with the SUN Business Network (SBN).

Thriving communities

Creating events with the safety and wellbeing of our community in mind, adapting to better serve your personal and professional needs.

We are making accessibility and inclusiveness our priority by ensuring our content can be accessible to those with impairments or language barriers.

One of the biggest challenges a company face when embracing any aspect of sustainability is finding the right information and resources. In an effort to empower our community, Vitafoods Asia Digital Week offered webinars and sessions tackling some of the issues the industry faces.

Additionally, we created a series of short guides to help you make the most of the event and stay on top form throughout. We included additional resources which we hope inspired you to create a more sustainable future for your company and the industry.
