SQUARE Think Green actions

11/02/2019

By their very nature events create waste. It is therefore our duty and responsibility to offset the impact of these important but ephemeral meetings as much as possible.

This is why SQUARE is committed to operating sustainably, in fact our engagement goes beyond reducing our impact on the environment; we have adopted best practices to manage both our social and environmental impact at all stages of our supply chain. These best practices are closely monitored because they form an integral part of our corporate and social responsibility. As a result, the Brussels environment agency awarded SQUARE with the first star of the Ecodynamic label, an industry standard for sustainable events management.
