Our Commitment to Sustainability
At Sonova and Advanced Bionics, we are committed to creating sustainable value for all our stakeholders: we continuously innovate to provide the best solutions for our customers. We enable access to hearing care for millions of people with hearing loss, invest in the development of our employees and partners, and apply eco-efficient practices across all our business activities.
We are focusing on becoming more environmentally friendly and reducing our environmental impact, at conferences. You'll see, we're doing this in a number of ways at this year's BCIG 2023 conference including:
- Sustainable event stand solutions - we're showcasing this year in a way that's making an impact but also a difference. Our cardboard event stand is made from corrugated cardboard and utilises reusable materials. It's durable and reusable as well as creating a memorable space. We have also decided to go paperless and all our resources are available to download below.
- Supporting small, local businesses - as BCIG 2023 is hosted in Cambridge, we have opted to support a local, well-established and iconic bakery, Fitzbillies; renowned for their Chelsea buns. The bakery was founded in 1920 by Ernest and Arthur Mason. They were the sons of local bread maker `Ticker', and they specialised in fancy cakes, including Chelsea buns.
- Eco-friendly giveaways - we've sourced some great, reusable merchandise including a Boc`n'Roll sandwich wrap that delivers zero waste and a great alternative to disposable plastic, foil or cling film. Manufactured from durable and washable fabric, these are stain-resistant, waterproof, airtight and practical. To see how to use the sandwich wrap, watch this YouTube video. You'll also receive a canvas reusable shopper bag along with a notebook and pen made from a range of eco materials including recycled kraft paper and bamboo.
