ISSA Show North America 2022 Prioritizes Sustainability


DALLAS, TX.— October 4, 2022 — ISSA  Show North America 2022, an annual tradeshow that unites leaders within the commercial, institutional, and residential cleaning community, along with its exhibition organizer, Informa Markets, will prioritize  sustainability and power the event using 100% renewable electricity. Taking place October 10-13, 2022, at McCormick Place in Chicago,  ISSA  Show North America 2022 is committed to inspiring sustainable development, hosting an environmentally accountable event, and conducting it in a socially responsible manner.

“Our goal is to run a socially and environmentally responsible event that inspires sustainable product development and business practices,”Âť said  ISSA  Executive Director John Barrett. “The show will also prioritize  sustainability  by featuring an environmental, social responsibility, and governance (ESG) educational track with a multitude of sessions.”Âť

The show will feature an array of ESG sessions designed to spark meaningful discussions around current, trending topics such as cleaning for health, driving value through healthy buildings, environmental responsibility, and diversity, equity, and inclusion. Additionally, the  ISSA  Sustainability  Committee will host a panel discussion, “The Future of  Sustainability  for the Cleaning Industry,”Âť on October 10 at 3 p.m., to reflect on the cleaning industry’s  sustainability needs and how the association can deliver accessible, credible, and enduring programs to fit.

Sofidel is the show’s  sustainability  presenting sponsor. The company will share details of its  sustainability  journey at the show within the  Sustainability  Hub. Show attendees are invited to stop by the Hub to also engage and learn about the  sustainability  efforts that Informa Markets,  ISSA, McCormick Place, and GES are executing to ensure ISSA  Show 2022 is an environmentally and socially responsible event.

Sustainability  is at the core of our business, and we are proud to be the presenting  sustainability  sponsor of  ISSA Show North America 2022,”Âť said Fabio Vitali, Vice President of Marketing at Sofidel America. “As a business, we strive to build an inclusive, sustainable, and resilient world for people and the planet. We look forward to participating in discussions that inspire sustainability  and innovation within the industry.”Âť

ISSA  Show North America 2022 has partnered with GES, its official general services contractor, to reduce  its carbon footprint through energy efficiency, consideration of energy use, waste reduction, and procurement choices.   This includes using 100 percent renewable electricity, reducing waste by donating usable leftover materials, and placing additional recycling bins in all official show management meeting spaces.

To encourage social responsibility,  ISSA  Show North America has partnered with  ISSA  Charities™, the charitable and philanthropic arm of  ISSA, by sponsoring, funding, and operating charitable and social programs directly connected to the cleaning industry. In addition, the event offers the chance to donate all leftover materials to Opportunity Village, a non-profit organization that serves people in the Las Vegas community with intellectual disabilities, for training purposes to help place participants in cleaning industry positions.

“Together with  ISSA, we have prioritized  sustainability and have focused on opportunities to significantly reduce our carbon footprint in order to host an environmentally-conscious and socially responsible event,”Âť said Amie Gilmore, Director at Informa Markets. “McCormick Place is a venue dedicated to conservation and ecologically sustainable initiatives, and we are thrilled to partner together to power the event using renewable energy and help inspire sustainable initiatives throughout the cleaning industry.”Âť
