Think global, act local

The Frankfurt Book Fair is facing up to its environmental responsibilities. Together with the Messe Frankfurt, it is implementing measures aimed at optimum protection of the environment and greater sustainability, such as:

  • cutting back on drinking water and electricity consumption and air-conditioning
  • using solar energy and eco-electricity
  • backing the use of public transport locally and long-distance
  • integrated waste disposal concept (recycling rate 80 to 90 per cent)
  • use of regionally produced foodstuffs
  • reusable crockery in the Fair’s catering facilities
