SupplySide West 2023 Showcases Critical Environmental and Community Initiatives

Wednesday, 04 October 2023 10:15 AM

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / October 4, 2023 / SupplySide West, presented by Title Sponsor KSM-66 Ashwagandha, is the leading west-coast event in dietary supplements, food and beverage, personal care and animal nutrition and is returning to Las Vegas October 23 - 27 (Expo October 25 - 26) at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. The event gathers health and nutrition suppliers and buyers together to explore the science and strategy around the development of finished products as well as offering comprehensive education and product discovery. The 2023 expo highlights philanthropy through social good, environmental and industry impact actions.

Continuing with Informa's FasterForward commitment to carbon neutrality by 2025, SupplySide West addresses environmental impact through opportunities to lessen carbon output and material waste. Initiatives include procurement options with lower carbon footprint, partnering with third party certified carbon offset programs for travel and hotels, as well as creating an on-site 100% renewable energy powered event supporting electricity, heating and cooling. SupplySide West continues with the aim of being certified carbon neutral, focusing on finding robust ways to partner with attendees to provide the most-value for in person connection and choices for individual mitigation of carbon emissions.

In addition to reducing paper signage through the adoption of digital maps, SupplySide will partner with general service contractor Global Experience Specialists (GES) on the Better Stands Initiative to promote and produce reusable booths minimizing post-event landfill output. This program encourages exhibitors and contractors to move away from disposable, single use stands at events and utilize reusable or recyclable structures.

For the second year, SupplySide West and City of Las Vegas Tree Initiative partner with National Plant & Floral to donate all trees used to line the main cross aisles at the event to mitigate the urban heat island effect in the city that makes Las Vegas the fastest warming city in the United States. Trees used at the show will be donated and replanted locally, contributing to the goal of 60,000 planted trees in the next 30 years to help provide shade in the residential areas of Las Vegas.

SupplySide is dedicated to creating opportunities which contribute to a more equitable industry through relationships with Diversity Org and Black Women in Food. Prioritizing career exploration for community groups in health and nutrition through show tours, networking and professional development workshops, connects future entrants and existing professionals in the markets to leading thought experts, innovative practices and globally renowned brands.

"As a company, we are focusing on environmental sustainability and ethical business practices, prioritizing the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals objective. These are top of mind when planning and executing SupplySide," notes Marisa Finnegan, Director of Events at SupplySide. "In collaboration with several philanthropic organizations we have generated new opportunities for learning and participation to benefit the Las Vegas region as a core commitment to creating positive local and global market impact."
