This year, within the framework of the Smart City Expo Latam Congress, the “Zero Waste” campaign is launched, a pioneering self-management program, carried out in collaboration with the Puebla exhibition center, which promotes waste reduction and resource-savings during the event.
Zero Waste is focused on engaging visitors to live the Smart Cities experience.
Our exhibitors will join in promoting good business practices and implementing eco-friendly design innovations.
As an organization, we will exhibit actions adding to those of the venue, and will develop some good new practices.
