Path to Sustainability


Net Zero Carbon Events

Decarbonising the events industry, together.  At RX, we’re serious about sustainability. We are founding members of the Net Zero Carbon Events pledge to make our company, our events and the wider events industry net zero. We commit to being net zero by 2040 and to make a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. In 2023 we published our pathway to net zero, setting out our reduction strategy with key milestones for all our events. Given the complex nature of our supply chain and the emissions associated with a show, it is only by working together as an industry that we will be able to reduce our impact. The RX roadmap to Net Zero sets out how we will reduce carbon emissions and waste at all our events along with supporting venues to make sustainable supplier choices and power our events with clean, renewable energy sources.

To learn more view RX's Net Zero Roadmap.

 We are building a company of net zero heroes to take action and ensure a sustainable future. It’s only by working together as a retail industry that we will achieve our goals. 

Say No To Bottled Water at PAX Aus

What we are doing to support our sustainability goals at PAX Aus

PAX Aus is Australia’s largest celebration of gaming and gaming culture. In saying this, it is important for us to highlight what we are doing to ensure our events are sustainable. We are pleased to share that PAX is implementing the following sustainable initiatives.

We promote the use of reusable cups and bottles onsite to reduce waste. 40c discounts on hot beverages are available for those using a reusable cup at participating venues.

We are working with venues to provide additional waste streams and better signage for waste disposal. 

We are transitioning to use digital guides and apps to replace printed materials, so download the app!

RX have introduced sustainable criteria for custom stand designs to raise awareness and to promote exhibitors to use sustainability alternatives.

We encourage exhibitors to hire as many components for their stand as possible where the items can be re-used. 

We strive to use products that have a full life cycle that come from and can be recycled. We encourage our exhibitors to do the same. 

Post-show donations – many venues offer the ability to donate furniture and products to charity after the event.

All exhibitors and contractors must use LED lighting only. The use of Halogen lights is now banned.

As an attendee, how can I contribute to sustainability at PAX?

Use public transport to and from our event to reduce your emissions

Use recycling bins on the show floor for disposing of recyclable materials

Use reusable coffee cups when purchasing beverages at the venue.
