Sustainable Engagement Fact Sheet
People, Planet, Profit - Adapting to Global Standards

The Fiera Milano Group—of which MiCo is an integral part—for some time now, has conformed to the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) Triple Bottom Line, which defines the criteria for environmental, economic and social sustainability. Respect for the environment goes hand in hand with the economic sustainability of the project, and initiatives both aimed at the professional growth of its employees, and the establishment of favorable working conditions. In terms of social impact, MiCo’s social responsibility extends beyond the purely corporate bounds, to look toward the future of the coming generations. It supports the young people enrolled in the (LAMCI-ASERI project —Sacred Heart Catholic University, Milan) postgraduate Master’s degree program, focused on international congresses, by bringing them into contact with the working world and hands-on knowledge of the reference market in their chosen field of study.

The Green Belt

MiCo is integrated into a network of bike and walking paths that weave a green corridor throughout the urban fabric. The green belt is an eco-sensitive corridor, through metropolitan areas, designed to enhance the wellbeing of its citizens.

Do Not Consume

The new conference center—inaugurated in May 2011—is part of the regeneration of exhibition spaces where walls, slabs, some of the roofing and systems, have been recycled with the obvious intent of not using new urban land or new materials.

Do Not Disperse

MiCo was designed to incorporate the guidelines for conservation of energy produced by the heating, cooling and lighting systems in its interior spaces, through the use of double-glazed windows, equipped with solar protection, insulation of the roof and walls, use of digital lighting systems, and the creation of spaces with similar requirements for temperature and illumination.

Careful Use

Daily use of the space and hosting thousands of guests call for the constant use of automatically-controlled energy-producing elements. Energy-efficient electrical equipment, a building automation system that controls the functions of the thermomechanical plant, water-flow regulators on water faucets and other discharge equipment, make it possible to reduce energy waste across the board.

The congress center and its offices comply with the rules for separate collection regarding waste disposal and recycling and ensure—through precise checking procedures— compliance with these regulations by the exhibition set up suppliers, who are responsible for taking care of it.

Do Not Waste

MiCo is not just a stop on an itinerary, but a destination where people share meaningful moments of their business and personal lives, and during which they take advantage of the services provided by carefully selected partners. The company that manages the catering services at MiCo —and which is committed to its ethical guidelines—makes free daily deliveries of the food left-over from events, properly sealed in packages, to the Siticibo-Food Bank, for distribution to those in need.
