The Paysalia show limits its environmental impact by implementing  dedicated action plans with  concrete results. We set out to reduce our carbon footprint, limit the use of expendables to maximize our circular economy, and to develop diversity and the local benefit from our events.

Paysalia is a partner of the “Planting for the Future” fund. This fund, financed through sponsorship, assists 352 (and counting) reforestation projects throughout France, with 2.35 million trees and 2,120 hectares re-planted so far in an approach based on sustainable forest management and adaptation to climate change.

Thanks to donations from its sponsors, Planting for the Future provides a concrete response to the challenges of reforestation in France through its programmes:

  • Planting: with direct support for landowners for their reforestation operations.
  • Awareness: working to inform people about the fundamental role of forests and the uses of timber.
  • Innovation: supporting the development of forest management techniques and practices suited to the environmental and climate challenges of the future.

For its 2023 edition, Paysalia is planting a tree for every registered exhibitor!  

Come and meet them at stand 4K07 during the Paysalia show!
