    Scan Display wins international sustainability award

    Exhibition, events and display specialist, Scan Display, is honoured to have received a 2013 Sustainable Development Award for the South African Climate Change Response Expo hosted at COP17 in November 2011. The award was presented by the Paris-based UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry.


    UFI selected Scan Display’s entry as the winner of the “Best Innovative Environmental Initiative” award based on “Scan Display’s full approach to sustainability in this challenging project which started from a parking lot and ended up as a comprehensive concept.”

    The CCR Expo, as the project is referred to, implemented measures to manage procurement, waste, and water and energy consumption, in a responsible manner. A number of positive social benefits for the local community were also built into the legacy of the expo.

    Justin Hawes, Managing Director of Scan Display, says: “Scan Display was incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to work on this project.. The Department of Environmental Affairs was the client, and they were committed to making the event environmentally and socially responsible.”

    This year there were two UFI Sustainable Development Award categories; the second was for “Best Reporting on Sustainability”. This was also won by a South African company – the Cape Town International Convention Centre. Hawes adds: “I feel proudly South African, seeing that both awards went to South African companies. This demonstrates that our country is playing a leading role in promoting sustainability in the international exhibition industry”.

    Entries for the six finalists chosen for the two award categories can be viewed at www.ufi.org/sdaward.
