GoGreen Ticket—together sustainable for a green future!

Everyone can contribute to protecting the environment, including you as a visitor to EXPO REAL!

We are trying to make your visit to the trade fair as low-emission as possible. We would therefore be delighted if you would help us achieve our goal by reducing your emissions as much as you can. To offset unavoidable emissions, we are offering you the chance to offset your carbon emissions at the fair. By paying an offset fee based on the average carbon emissions of our visitors at the last EXPO REAL, you can make a significant contribution to promoting climate protection projects. This offset fee of EUR 5.00 will be invested in a regional, Bavarian carbon offset project, as well as in another high-quality myclimate carbon offset project that meets the highest standards (Gold Standard, Plan Vivo) and, in addition to reducing greenhouse gases, demonstrably makes a positive local and regional contribution to sustainable development. Let’s create a greener future together.

“Climate change is a global and generation-wide challenge that we must also face as a company. Our exhibition grounds already feature many environmentally friendly facets, from geothermal energy and photovoltaics to large scale greening. As Messe München, we want to strengthen our “green footprint” and be CO₂ neutral by 2030 at the latest. That's why we're also appealing to our visitors, exhibitors and partners to behave in an environmentally friendly manner and take an important step toward a more sustainable future together with us.”

Consciously avoiding emissions

In addition to the GoGreen Ticket, there will be other opportunities for you to avoid emissions, save raw materials and protect the environment during your visit to EXPO REAL 2023.

Climate protection on site

Drinking with Re-Cup: Reusable cups, bottles or other containers are welcome guests at EXPO REAL.

Feel free to bring your own to avoid waste!

Environmentally friendly travel

  • Climate-friendly travel: Plan a low-emission journey by train. Thanks to the seamless connection between the trade fair center and Munich's public transportation system, you'll always be right in the middle of the action.
  • Green refueling on site: 50 stations are available on the trade fair grounds for charging your electric vehicle.
  • Cleanly separated: strict recycling makes EXPO REAL even more sustainable, which is why we dispose of the waste resulting from assembly and dismantling as commercial waste for recycling. Recyclable materials can thus be returned to the economic cycle.

Our project selection—our responsibility

The CO₂ emissions are offset in a climate protection project for clean drinking water in schools in Uganda. In addition, the Bavarian State Forests measure supports regional climate protection commitment that meets the highest standards (Gold Standard, Plan Vivo) and, in addition to reducing greenhouse gases, demonstrably makes a positive local and regional contribution to sustainable development.

The GoGreen Ticket fees collected are donated to the following regional and international carbon offset projects:

The primary objective of the program is to disseminate water purification systems to low-income households and institutions such as schools, starting in Uganda. Carbon finance is used to give households access to the clean water technologies thereby improving the livelihoods and health conditions of thousands of people and at the same time reducing CO₂ emissions by reducing the consumption of non-renewable firewood and charcoal.

Situation without project:
Water purification by boiling with non-renewable wood and charcoal

Yearly CO₂ reduction:
61.399 t

Your support contributes to the following 8 Sustainable Development Goals:

SDG1—No poverty
Over 130 tons of firewood can be saved by a school on average per water filtration system.

SDG 3—Good Health
More than 210,000 pupils benefit from the installed systems.

SDG 4—Quality Education
Thanks to clean drinking water, pupils are ill less often and can attend school more regularly.

SDG 6—Clean water and sanitary facilities
One school can treat 457,000 litres of drinking water per year.

SDG 12—Responsible consumption and production
354 water filter tanks and water treatment filters have been installed so far.

SDG 13—Climate Actions
50,000 tonnes of CO₂ are saved per year.

SDG 15—Life on land
1,266 hectares of forest saved from deforestation.

SDG 17—Partnerships for the goals
Development, transfer and distribution of environmentally friendly water treatment technology.

The main objective of this climate protection project is to convert Bavarian forest areas into climate change-resistant mixed forests. The following measures are being implemented by the Bavarian State Forestry Department:​

  • Planting trees to create climate change-resistant mixed forests
    (such as silver fir, larch, beech, oak, Douglas fir)​
  • Preparatory work for professional planting, such as plant provision, quality assurance, protection and maintenance​
  • There are no new plantings of additional forest areas—the plantings are all intended to support the conversion of existing forests​
  • Funding supports in particular complex plantings that involve special protection, intensive care and/or special tree species or tree species mixtures

myclimate—our partner

In order to promote regional climate engagement in Bavaria, myclimate is working with the Bavarian State Forestry Department. The Bavarian State Forestry Department promotes the conversion of forest areas to create climate change-resistant mixed forests in Bavaria.
