We get it—events and trade shows like Natural Products Expo have an impact on the environment. That's why, through our Sustainability Program, New Hope Network and Natural Products Expo are striving to identify, understand and address these impacts to achieve continual improvement year after year.
Working with Honeycomb Strategies, New Hope Network developed and implemented a sustainability program that aligns with two event sustainability standards, ISO 20121 and ASTM/APEX, with a focus on waste management, energy and water conservation, sustainable procurement and community engagement.
