Salone del Mobile.Milano renews its sustainability policy for 2024



The SALONE DEL MOBILE.MILANO, set up in Milan in 1961 to promote the export of Italian furnishing and furnishing accessories, is the benchmark international furnishing and design sector event: each year It attracts over 300,000 specialist visitors, around 65% of them from abroad, from more than 181 countries, 5,000 Italian and international journalists, and around 27,500 members of the public over the weekend, and it is a springboard for young designers thanks to the SaloneSatellite.


Over the last few editions, the Salone has demonstrated its concrete commitment to identifying solutions and enacting virtuous practices. Testament to this are its membership of the United Nations Global Compact – the leading business sustainability initiative at global level – its circulation of Green Guidelines for planning and building trade fair displays and, especially, being awarded ISO 20121 certification for sustainable events management, relating to the planning, set-up and management of the event.


At the 2024 Edition (running from 16th to 21st of April in Milan), environmental, economic and social responsibilities will remain priorities for the Salone del Mobile.Milano, which is endeavouring to organise all the activities and events (both those directly run by the Salone and those run by the exhibiting companies) so that they have the greatest possible positive effect on the surrounding social and environmental ecosystem, are geared to the efficient use of resources, cutting waste, and protecting the human rights, diversity, health and safety of those taking part in the event and those workers involved in its organisation, and ensuring benefits for all the companies taking part and the local community.


The pillars on which the Salone del Mobile.Milano intends to build its path towards sustainability, in conformity with the principles of inclusivity, integrity and transparency are as follows : 


• Promoting the environmental, social and financial compatibility of the activities and services provided; 

respect for people, the true resource in every project and event; 

ethical business

meeting the demands and expectations of its stakeholders. 


The Salone del Mobile.Milano also undertakes to set up and operate an ongoing system for monitoring the performance of its own Management System for Event Sustainability, in order to keep improving the service it provides, the satisfaction of its stakeholders and the increasing sustainability of the event.
