Tools for the characterization of the choices of the Expo 2015 Countries on environmental sustainability and green procurement

Project carried out within a collaboration between the Department of Energy of Politecnico di Milano and the Italian Ministry of Environment on the carbon footprint of big events.

The project developed a methodology for measuring the “sustainability” of Expo Milano 2015 participating Countries and to communicate it to stakeholders, visitors and the international community.
The idea is based on the evaluation of the Country’s environmental performance using a transparent system of criteria with reference to certain categories: Buildings, Food and beverage, Furniture, merchandising, packaging and events, Information, awareness raising and stakeholders involvement.
