SKIP TO CONTENT

Sustainability KPIs Summary

This data table shows the performance indicators that Informa is currently monitoring for its sustainability performance. We are in the process of reviewing these and seeking to introduce more that measure the impact of our work, particularly in the areas of Content and Communities.

We are also looking at ways we can expand the coverage of the Content and Communities KPIs to be relevant to more divisions. Our data currently covers 100% of Informa's global coverage, including all controlled subsidiaries, where relevant (e.g. in environmental impact, colleague data, community giving etc). This is in line with our financial reporting
