The IMEX Group has revealed a new volunteer-led CSR initiative, ahead of the United Nations World Environment Day,
Garbage Grabbers Clean Up in Las Vegas is a new project in which IMEX America is working with the Outside Las Vegas Foundation, a volunteer coordination group for nature and the outdoors in southern Nevada.
On Monday 17 October, volunteers attending the IMEX week will be invited to join IMEX America staff and Las Vegas residents in an organised clean-up of walking trails and parks.
The MeetGreen Sustainability Report for IMEX America 2015 shows that concerted sustainability actions by hosted buyers, visitors, exhibitors and the organising team continue to make a difference, reducing both waste and the environmental footprint of the show.
Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group said: “We’re thrilled to be launching this new project, which gives a fresh dimension to our legacy work in Las Vegas. It naturally complements our existing partnerships with The Shade Tree and Opportunity Village and gives industry volunteers a brand new way to show their love of the environment while, hopefully, making lifelong friends and new business connections.”
