For an increasingly sustainable future

Fondazione Fiera Milano is imagining an increasingly sustainable future for the territory, both from an environmental and social point of view.

For this reason, it has committed to promoting ecological transition, starting from its exhibition and congress facilities, and collaborate with institutions and third sector players at the implementation of initiatives with a strong social impact.

Our commitment

Environmental sustainability

Fondazione Fiera Milano has committed to implementing measures to improve the environmental profile of exhibition and congress districts, focusing on the production and consumption of energy from renewable sources and on the adoption of energy-efficient systems.

FieraMilano and Allianz Mico are equipped with a district heating system connected to the Silla 2 waste-to-energy plant in Milan Figino, which uses the heat produced by the combustion of the city’s waste.

The photovoltaic system of FieraMilano is one of the most important rooftop projects in Europe and the largest ever applied to exhibition pavilions; it ensures a 30% reduction in consumption and a total of 15.7 Mwp in power.

Always attentive and sensitive to the relationship between its facilities and the urban context in which they are located, Fondazione Fiera Milano has taken particular care in developing the green areas of FieraMilano and in landscaping a public park in the Municipality of Rho.

Social sustainability

Fondazione Fiera Milano promotes the reduction of inequalities and inclusiveness in the territory in which it operates, also through a venture philanthropy model, by offering real support to initiatives with a high social impact.

The Foundation identifies the best social initiatives proposed on an online platform.

Funds are invested in five main action areas: culture, scientific research, training, society, and sport.

To date, over 4.3 million euro have been disbursed only in the three-year period 2020-2022.

Sustainability Report

Starting from 2025, the European Union will extend the non-financial reporting obligation to over 50,000 companies. This document will have to be integrated in a recognizable way in the Management’s report on operations and drafted according to a single European standard, which is still being defined.

In anticipation of these provisions, Fondazione Fiera has started publishing its 2022 annual report by incorporating both financial and non-financial information into a single document.

In line with the methodology proposed by the most widely used international standards for non-financial reporting – the Global Reporting Initiative’s GRI Standards 2021 – in 2022 Fondazione Fiera Milano updated its materiality analysis by identifying 10 material themes on which to focus its reporting.

The materiality themes have been shared and evaluated with some key opinion leaders, selected as experts based on the Foundation’s sector knowledge and understanding.
