Spring .eu Illustrated

26 april 2017

With the release of our latest edition of the .eu Illustrated, we are celebrating more than five successful years of environmental management. Though we operate in a very technical space, we are a proud and active member of the European Union Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS), where solid environmental management and transparent reporting structures meet. Over the past 5 years, we have achieved more than ten environmental objectives, which were set within our 2012-2015 and 2015 – 2017 environmental statements.

To show our green commitment, we have teamed up with several companies to support various environmental projects, including a cooperation with BORSEGGI, an Italian tailoring company based in the Milan-Opera prison, to recycle unused materials from fairs and events. With this partnership, we wish to inspire the world to see waste in a different way and demonstrate what the circular economy is really about, from production to consumption, to waste management and the market for secondary raw materials.

In 2016, we began collaborating on a continual project in the Osogovo Mountains in Bulgaria in conjunction with Naturefund and EuroNatur. The goal is to conserve the outstanding biological diversity in the Osogovo Mountain region by supporting sustainable forest management, improving the knowledge of large carnivores in the region to help with the decision making process, and analysing the potential for nature-based tourism.

The spring 2017 issue of the .eu Illustrated not only sheds light on our environmental efforts, but also highlights some of the incredible work that is being done by .eu and .ею holders themselves.

The Better World category for the 2017 .eu Web Awards aims to reward and admire the great work that our green community members do day in and day out.
