Building the future

We know how sustainability is increasingly important.

Running Asia Health gives us lots of opportunities to improve our impact environmentally, socially and economically in our region.  We want to make the event more responsible and play a role in helping the market improve its own sustainability through connecting people with the networks and knowledge they want to help solve the big challenges in the laboratory sector.

FasterForward

FasterForward is Informa’s approach to sustainable business.

Our aim is to continually enhance our sustainability efforts and promote positive impact in all aspects of our business.

Through the FasterForward program, we integrate sustainability into all our operations, and actively seek opportunities to support our customers and markets in doing the same.This structured three-part program comprises ambitious commitments and a diverse range of activities focused on improving our business operations, brands and products, and community impact.

When it comes to sustainability, we’re moving FasterForward.
