GL events’ activities are part of a concrete approach to integrity and respect for French and international standards in terms of ethics and compliance.

In this respect, GL events deploys an ethics and compliance programme that currently covers several aspects:


Four values

Through this charter, GL events intends to promote values that are essential to the conduct of the Group’s business, both in France and internationally.

These values are:

– Pioneering spirit, so that every GL events employee demonstrates initiative and a sense of responsibility
– Imagination, to combine boldness and innovative solutions to serve our customers
– Respect for all stakeholders who interact with GL events
– Group spirit, so that everyone within GL events acts with complete loyalty, with the best shared ambition.

Ten principles

This charter expresses GL events’ ambition to respect ten essential principles that structure our initiatives and the exercising of our businesses in all countries where the Group operates, whether on a permanent or occasional basi


The purpose of the governance bodies is to support the implementation of the Ethics Charter.


GL events operates a system to prevent corruption and influence peddling, in line with the provisions of the law of 9 December 2016 (known as the Sapin II law).
This programme is based mainly on the following tools and actions:
– The Anti-Corruption Code of Conduct, directly inspired by the document proposed by Middlenext. This code describes prohibited behaviour and practical rules applicable to all GL events employees. Lastly, the code summarises training initiatives and whistleblowing and sanction procedures.


– A dedicated email address is available for all alert-related contacts:; a platform is also available here. It is open to all GL events employees and business partners and guarantees the anonymity of whistleblowers.
– The creation of an Ethics Committee, whose purpose is the overall management of ethical alerts, in terms of corruption, influence peddling and any other subject relating to the Group’s Ethics Charter.
The Ethics Committee is responsible for the following main tasks:
– Receiving ethics alerts, in particular those relating to the prevention of corruption and influence peddling
– Dealing with ethical whistleblowers by carrying out the necessary investigations within the allotted timeframes, while scrupulously ensuring that whistleblowers are protected
– Submitting regular reports, as required, to the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and to the Board of Directors of GL events.
In addition, the Ethics Committee interacts with the Ethics Officer, as required, to adapt operational training and prevention initiatives. The operating rules of the Ethics Committee are defined in a specific Charter, expressly adopted by each of its members.
– Appointing an Ethics Officer responsible for the following tasks:
– Contributing to and ensuring the effective implementation of practical measures to prevent corruption and influence peddling
– Ensuring the international deployment of legal and internal standards
– Ensuring effective training of those exposed
– Helping to run the network of referrers in the operational entities in France and abroad.
Patricia Sadoine is the GL events Ethics Officer. Patricia Sadoine is also the GL events Corporate Legal Director.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is defined by the European Commission as the voluntary integration by companies of social and environmental considerations into their commercial activities and their dealings with stakeholders.
While CSR is the practical implementation of sustainable actions applied to companies, the acronym ESG refers to the Environmental, Social and Governance criteria to be taken into account when assessing a CSR policy.

The GL events Group’s primary objective is to reduce its carbon footprint, with the target of reducing energy consumption by 25%. Measures have been taken to achieve this, including an ambitious energy efficiency plan, promoting renewable energies, encouraging low-carbon transport and mobility and measuring its carbon footprint.
GL events has also developed a roadmap for reducing emissions.

The second objective is to limit the use of single-use products and to maximise its circular economy The Group has implemented an eco-design policy to maximise waste reduction through asset rotation, and GL events is continually working to improve waste sorting and recovery.

The third objective is to develop diversity and territories through GLO-CAL partnerships and activities. GL events is committed to solidarity and philanthropy. The Group encourages responsible purchasing and supports the SSE (Social and Solidarity Economy). GL events also believes that diversity is a strength and promotes this through its ethical and entrepreneurial values.

The main results of this strategy are seen in:

  • a 22% reduction in emissions in 2022 compared with
    the data published in 2019 for the 3 axes.
  • 52% of the Group’s electricity (France and International) being classified as renewable, including 100% of venue sites in France being supplied with renewable electricity.
  • a 12-point increase in the waste sorting rate. The Group is aiming
    to increase this figure from 32% in 2019 to 44% in 2022.

The Group’s CSR vision is embodied operationally by the GreenTech+ division. This organises 9 trade fairs dedicated to accelerating the ecological transition through product and industry trade fairs. This new GL events Group entity is committed to supporting the industry’s players in their development, seeking out solutions for the future and encouraging our fellow citizens to become increasingly eco-responsible.
