Set on Sustainability
Our mission is to be a catalyst for change and part of the global sustainability movement using our skills, voice, and relationships to make a positive impact on the world.
We see a world in transition where people need to meet online and face-to-face to develop solutions to the world’s greatest challenges. Our vision is to build a sustainable business with a culture of care and responsibility that facilitates this transformation to a more sustainable planet, just society and a growing economy.
In this section we describe our approach to sustainability. We outline our positions, strategies and key sustainability issues that are relevant to our company, the events industry and our stakeholders.
Look into the MCI Dream, understand our desire to build a company that considers others with a belief that people and their diversity represent our wealth; but also an aspiration to leave a mark and be a shining example of innovation, quality and corporate responsibility leadership.
Since 2007 we have been developing our sustainability strategy guided by the concept of a balanced trimple bottom line of People, Planet & Profit. We are now upgrading it to align and support the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Identify our approach to stakeholder engagement and the issues they think are important for us to address.
Events are our core business, with over 5700 events organised in 2016. Learn how we help our clients to apply sustainability as a powerful filter to improve and innovate in their events & businesses while reducing their negative impact on the planet.
Examine our approach to sustainable procurement. We value our suppliers as key partners in achieving our clients’ objectives and 100% of our global preferred suppliers are working in line with our sustainability policy.
We see the UN Sustainable Development Goals as an overarching framework that can help us to shape, steer, communicate and report on our sustainability strategies, goals and activities.
Explore our commitment to transparency and desire to promote accountability in good business practice. We report using the new GRI G4 Reporting Framework and the United Nations Global Compact COP Framework.
Determine our approach to governance, compliance with laws, industry codes of conduct and how MCI’s own strong values and guiding principles shape our business and provide the foundation on which we engage with society, clients, partners and suppliers.
