MIPIM - The Global Urban Festival
12-15 March 2024
Palais des Festivals, Cannes, France

MIPIM has pledged to be a pioneering event in matters of sustainability. Having a positive social impact is one of our commitments.

Positive social impact

MIPIM collects and reuses a range of materials through our partnership with non-profit association GreenBee, to share resources with local communities and minimise the creation of waste. 

Materials donation for reuse

We collect and reuse a range of assets thanks to our partnership with GreenBee, a non-profit association based in Cannes which specialises in upcycling materials used at events. Success stories from 2023 include social housing in the Alpes-Maritimes region, a bakery, a Hack Lab, and educational store and so much more.

Food donation

After the Opening Reception, any unconsummed food will be donated to l'Armée du Salut, ensuring that every bite serves a meaningful purpose beyond the event. L'Armée du Salut is an organization committed to providing assistance to the less fortunate in our community. We thank our caterer Giry and our partner GreenBee for organizing this.

Architectes de l'urgence

MIPIM happy invites Architectes de l'Urgence (emergency architects) to participate to 2024.  You can meet them in Palais-1 to learn about their mission: building walls to rebuild lives.

For 20 years, Architectes de l'urgence have been working to rebuild homes and essential infrastructure for affected populations, also offering training for a better future.

Virtuous partnerships

We care about who we work with, and choose partners that share our vision. We are proud to say that all the coffee in our lounges and offices at MIPIM is provided by Café Joyeux, a family of café-restaurants that contributes to professional inclusion of people with mental and cognitive disabilities. We also collaborate with les Alchimistes, for the collection and composting of food waste from our cocktails. We're also working with Ezymob, a young start up, to provide clients with a navigation app adapted to every need.

The MIPIM Sustainability Pledge

We are inviting exhibitors to join us in becoming signatories of an ambitious agreement and to commit to low carbon transporation, a greener stand and active engagement with the values of diversity, equity and inclusion.
