Sustainable Event Practices

Our commitment

Sustainability is a core commitment of the ITS World Congress, where we actively promote sustainable mobility initiatives and eco-friendly transportation solutions. Our focus is on reducing the environmental footprint, resonating with our attendees and exhibitors who prioritise environmental responsibility in ITS.

Recognising our global impact, we encourage participants to engage in sustainable projects during registration, fostering connections and addressing the sector’s most pressing challenges. This initiative highlights our dedication to leading the ITS industry towards a more sustainable future.
