We are committed to running events that are both environmentally sustainable and socially responsible. Here is a breakdown of how we are embedding sustainability in everything we do.

FasterForward with Informa

The Canadian Real Estate Forums is part of Informa Connect and the Informa Group. Sustainability at Informa focuses on the long term impacts we have on customers, colleagues, the communities we work in and the environment. For this reason, Informa developed the FasterForward approach to sustainable business.

Informa’s aim is to become an even more sustainable, positive impact business. Through the FasterForward program, we are embedding sustainability into everything we do and seizing opportunities from helping our customers and markets do the same.

FasterForward is a structured three-part program with ambitious commitments and a wide range of activities, covering Informa's business operations, our brands and products, and our broader community impact.

How are we building sustainable events?

We believe sustainable events focus on three main aims...

Social responsibility

Environmental responsibility

Sustainable development

We want the Canadian Real Estate Forums to be run in a socially responsible manner. To do so, we are focusing on:

  • Doing business safely and ethically
  • Considering wellbeing and accessibility
  • Creating a positive impact on our host cities and measuring our impacts
  • Supporting sponsors and partners in donating to local and industry-related charities

The Canadian Real Estate Forums will be run in an increasingly environmentally responsible manner, focusing on:

  • Convenient hydration stations throughout our events to reduce the need for single-use plastic water bottles
  • Using fully recyclable signage
  • No single-use plastic items
  • Decomposable name badge holders and recycling lanyards
  • Creating less waste by reducing printed programs and encouraging the use of the ConnectMe app for programs

Our aim is for Canadian Real Estate Forums to promote long-term sustainable development in the way we run our events. We are committing to:

  • Using our content to support the sustainability initiatives in real estate
  • Developing close partnerships with charities, companies, and associations and giving them a platform to promote their work in the field
  • Facilitating discussions on pertinent topics including ESG, sustainability, impact investing, diversity and inclusion, gender balance and more
